Recommended yard in lower Long Island Sound?

I have an alternator problem that is making me nervous about transiting NYC. Can anyone recommend a yard in the sound around Port Washington or that general area?

Thanks

Do you really need a yard?... Seems to me you need a marine electrical expert. Another option might be to PM Maine Sail, btrayfors or mitiempo.. They are very knowledgeable.

Found this:
Port Washington Electric

Odd.. The page looks mainly residential but the google hit mentioned marine service..

Hey,

I believe that Brad (bene505) is in that area. Perhaps he could recommend some one or place?

Re: Recommended yard in lower Long Island Sound?

I also thought of Brad, BarryL. Brad has an auto mechanic who has done some work for him on engine parts.

Sounds like you need a starter motor/alternator repair shop and a car.

There are Brewer's marinas in both Manhasset & Hempstead harbors. There are a few places in City Island too which may be worth checking out. Mamaroneck also has a few boat yards.

You can't go wrong with a Brewer Yard. Find the one closest to where you are and go there. There is one in Mamaroneck, in Port Washington and in Glen Cove. I used then for years with great success.

Re: Recommended yard in lower Long Island Sound?

Brewer yard in Port Wash./Manhasset bay good but if you
don't need to be in a yard, there are town moorings in Manhasset bay (yellow moorings)that you can pick up free for 48 hours or anchor within minutes of all the yards and the town/town dock.
I am local to Manhasset bay and can contact friend(marina foreman)
and see if can get qualified tech to come to boat if you want.
Also if any transportation or reprovisioning info needed, will be happy to help.
Will be sailing out of Manhasset bay tomorrow.

Good suggestion about the moorings in Manhasset Bay. Also can anchor in good protection if necessary. And a Worst Marine is handy.

Call Steve at Brewer Capri in Port Washington- (516) 883-7800. Tim is their mechanic. He's very good. They also have transient slips available.

Thanks for all the great support but MainSail did remotely what three yards had failed to do hands-on and find the actual problem. We are in good shape now so it's overnight in Port Washington the through The East River tomorrow - very exiting!
