Looking: Rent mooring in New Rochelle for the season

I have an O'day 280 that I'd like to moor in the New Rochelle marina for the 2012 season. I'm looking to rent a mooring as opposed to sinking my own as I'm still not sure that we'll stay in the NYC area after this year.

Any recommendations?
PJ

I'd call these guys first:
New Rochelle, NY - Mooring Contractors
Hopefully they will rent you a mooring otherwise you'd have to buy your own.
If you change your location the following season you might need a mooring wherever you decide to go.
A used 350# mushroom anchor with chain should cost you ~ < $350. Only pain in the arse would be having to haul it from one location to another and maintaining it.

Go to www.activecaptain.com and click on the interactive cruising guide. By zooming in on your area, you will find a button for every marina in your area. If you don't find something in New Rochelle specifically, you have dozens of places very nearby. Good luck.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Harbor Marine, aka Sea Tow of Western Long Island Sound, 914-698-6523, installs many of the moorings in Mamaroneck and Larchmont, which is just north of New Rochelle. They may know of some in the area that are for rent.

I think you'll have better luck finding a mooring in Mamaroneck or City Island.

City Island / Mamoraneck (sp sorry)

We had her at City Island for part of this season but the commute on the subway from East Village seems to be harder than the commute from Grand Central on the train to New Rochelle.

I scoped out New Rochelle in December testing the commute and it seemed much easier / more comfortable. Any other recommendations?

Not sure about Mammoraneck (again sorry for the spelling)

There just aren't a lot of moorings in New Rochelle's two harbors.....and the ones that exist belong to clubs or city residents.

Call around New Rochelle, but personally I think you'll have better luck with Mamaroneck. It's another two stops on the New Haven Line.

Good Luck!

The MetroNorth train to Mamaroneck takes about :40 minutes from Grand Central. The station is uphill from the harbor, maybe 1/4 mile walk.

I'd suggest you look into Oyster Bay, on LI but the train from Penn Station to OB takes 1:20 minutes (twice as long). There are some nice attributes to OB; train station practically on the beach, boater friendly town, once on the Sound it is about 10 miles wide. I'd call this place to ask about a mooring: WFC - The WaterFront Center, Oyster Bay, NY - Long Island Sound: Sailing, Boating, Marine Education, Field Trips, Recreation, Kayaking, Summer Programs

LIRR to Port Washington takes about the same as MetroNorth to Mamaroneck but the station is a bit farther from the water then Mamaroneck.
Good luck.

New Rochelle Municipal Marina has moorings, but for a long time it was for residents only, and there was a waiting list.

Maybe with the slow economy they have some openings for non-residents.

New Rochelle, NY - Marinas, Docks & Harbors

can't hurt to call
