There is an anchorage, the closest thing to a hurricane hole, on the Hudson about 1/4 mile south of Haverstraw Marina. It is locally called Bowline Point and is behind a water park that has a hexagonal gazebo visible from the water.
The problem here is that the spit of land that separates this 'pond' from the river is not very high. There is a shoal in the middle to north side of the entrance. You hug the entrance to the south side when entering or leaving. If you look on google maps for Bowline Point you should see where the shoal shows up at low water.
The bright side is that there are some trees around this 2 or 3 acre pond that one could tie to. The down side is there may already be a boat (or 2) in there.
Members of my club like to raft up their boats here in 'normal' conditions.
I would not want to be in their shoes.

Please pass this on to your Canuck friends.
