NYC Area Mooring

I'm looking for an inexpensive mooring in the NYC area for a 26' boat. I don't need all the services of a yacht club, just a mooring and a place to launch the dinghy so I can get out to the boat. I was looking at the Sheepshead Bay area in Brooklyn. Does anyone have a recommendation for an inexpensive marina in that area? The Parks Service manages that mooring field from what I've read.

Thanks,

Brian

I can recommend Great Kills field on Staten Island. It is nice protected bay inside of nice park with beaches and walking trails. Mooring is free. Permit is obtainable through National Park Service (718) 390-8000.
There was waiting list for boats over 25 ft long a year and a half ago, however I got my spot last spring. There is a boat ramp to launch a dinghy.

Thanks for the map Tempest, that's what I was look for. Also thanks for the suggestion on Great Kills, CrazyRu. I'm going to look into getting a mooring there.

Hi CrazyRU,

Free? really? Does the Park service maintain the moorings?

Any concerns regarding security? Any launch service, or do you have to launch your own dinghy...any dinghy storage ashore?

Thanks...

Great Kills Harbor is a well protected harbor. The mooring permit is free but you supply and maintain the ground tackle which include mushroom anchor, chain, etc. I belong to the Richmond County Yacht Club which provides tender service for members to get to their moorings.

Thanks HPLou,

So, is launch service is supplied only to Yacht Club Members?....

Not that it's a bad idea to be a Club Member...

Park doesn't maintain the moorings. It is boat's owner responsibility. There are vendors who will install and maintain balls for a fee.

Club is one option if you want to have a launch and dinghy storage. The club also has a barge for mooring installation and they store moorings on premises.

Nicholson Marina has small dinghy rack also.

I have small inflatable/cartopable kayak which I launch from fisherman beach - it is more convenient than boat ramp and it is close to my boat..
There is small dock at boat ramp. I motor my boat and pick up my guests there.

I don't think security is of any concern. I've spent about 1/3 nights of summer season on my boat, I didn't see any problems, except fishing hooks on my mooring lines. Police does regular rounds through the park also...

Thanks for the info CrazyRU. Sounds like it may be worth the drive to Staten Is. I already have all the ground tackle (mushroom, chain, bridles, etc) as I have a mooring on City Island. Wish they had something like this in Brooklyn.
