Mooring

I am looking for a mooring location for my 70' sailboat, interested in the Hudson area, could be north or south.

Think if I had a 70 foot sail boat I would be keeping it in a secure marina!
People can run into you on a mooring and bits have a habit of falling off moorings and casting you adrift even if you check them regularly.
Last year I took off half way round the world to NZ and within a week of my return my boat was recovered whilst setting out on its own for the USA!
The only reason I use a mooring is there are no secure marinas or harbours near by!

There is a truly gorgeous sailboat that looks like it could easily be 60-70' LOA from Bermuda which comes in every Spring and moors just south of the George Washington Bridge on the NJ side. She must be off Von Dohn's Marina in Fort Lee. She's still there (as of last weekend anyway) and it might be worth a trip over there to chat up the marina staff or find out who her owner is if you want more info. She's been there at least the last 4-5 years running and seems to find it quite satisfactory.

I think in order to properly answer your query regarding a mooring we'll need to see a pic of your boat

I'm always in awe of how graceful and powerful boats that size appear to be..

Can't do. In order to properly answer your query regarding a mooring we'll need to come on board and sail her for a day or two.

Are you talking about a mooring for next week, next month, or next season?
The Hudson gets chunks of ice the size of doublewides sliding downriver in the Winter. If you're in a spot protected from those, you can still get dinged by smaller pieces, or frozen in. A marina with slips that have air bubblers or mechanical ice inhibitors would be needed over the winter.

For a summer mooring, most of the more reasonably priced places will be on the New Jersey shore until you get up as far as Tarrytown or Nyack.

Julius Petersen Boatyard in Upper Nyack, NY will provide a secure mooring and can provide good mechanical support.
