Mooring Rental Old Saybrook Connecticut

We are looking to rent a mooring in the Old Saybrook Connecticut area. Does anybody know of a marina or person that rents seasonal moorings for a catalina 22?

Thanks in advance-

Not many rental moorings in Old Saybrook. The moorings in North Cove are all for locals (with a waiting list I believe). You might try Old Lyme Marina or one of the marinas in Essex.

Unless you are glued to Old Saybrook for some reason, JimsCAL is very correct. You will be hard put to find moorings in Old Saybrook. Like he said Old Lyme and Essex are the best bets for moorings but they are hard to come by. Keep in mind that the CT river stinks (as in Searay Stinks) during the weekends. These idiots charge up the river making life difficult with their wakes.

Look toward New London and Noank In Noank, Spicers Marina has a Pretty good sized mooring Field and Noank Shipyard on the Mystic River does as well. Going west from Old Saybrook there is nothing that I know of as far as Madison.

jim is right in one respect there are a lot of people on the river durring a weekend but supprising there are some really spots where it is very calm. and i think it is a great place!! I am very familiar with the area and may be able to help you.
Are you looking for a cheap exposed mooring where you dont mind traffic, wind and wake. or more private and secluded with little traffic and more protected and of course more expensive. Or are you looking for as close to the open sound as possible. are you planning on sailing on the river or in the sound? Also what is your draft? Let me know and i can direct you.

Hello-

Yes I anticipated a lot of traffic but was hoping to hit open water of LIS and less current from the river. Noank or New London increase travel time to the mooring and Old Saybrook seemed to be centrally located. I am trying to talk other family members into using the catalina 22 which has a 18 to 24 inch draft with centerboard up. I prefer the inexpensive space with a place to leave a dinghy in a safe spot on shore and possibly a loading dock to allow others to get on the boat rather than rowing back and forth several times.

Thanks for the assistance!

Joe
