I don't get far from home on my boat. However, anytime I can sit at a bar, drink a beer, and look at my boat, is a good day.

Re: Twenty miles from Connecticut to Guatamala

Hey,

I hear you. However, we were headed to Block Island and I didn't want to head any further west than I had too. While a quiet evening on the hook would have been nice, my wife and kids like to get off the boat and walk around. Orient By The Sea met those needs. The location is excellent, and for the 12 hours or so that I was there is was fine.

It is not a place I would suggest going to as a destination, but for a place to spend a night when you're trying to get somewhere it wasn't bad. Just not that if you have a large vessel it will be a real test of your boat handling skill.

Go a few miles farther around the point on the way to Greenport. Hang a right up along the beach and drop the hook north of the fish traps. Fire up the grill and have a quiet evening.

Re: Twenty miles from Connecticut to Guatamala

I can do that too. Why start the motor if the boat seems to be sailing right up to the dock? For another month maybe until it gets too cold.
