Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.
Kingston is a deep water. Tons of sailboats in and out all day , high tide or low. Good Anchorage to the south on the West Shore. Its 10' deep in there at low tide.
Saugerties is good as well.
I will be sailing our Little Catalina 22 out of Kingston Rondout the next couple days in between running family errands. Rondout has everything. There are a lot of transients stopping there. My Boat Yard ( Rondout Yacht Basin ) has laundry and bathrooms, showers, fuel, a small store.
They are crazy busy hauling boats now.
I repeat my offer for any help / free rides to the store anywhere between there and Bear mt Dock ( where I work) . Remember Mariners in Highland ( across from Poughkeepsie) has a dock to stay overnight if you eat there. They have no fuel but I could drive you up to get some. There is a West Marine Store not too far from the Bear Mt Dock if you need something from there.
I used to work at Bear Mountain Inn back in 1991. Love that place.
