Re: Looking for a home in NYC

Raritan can be a horrible commute from Queens. There's no way to get there without at least two river crossings and on summer weekends, those will be jammed. When they're not closed for whatever reason. Ignoring the tolls, which have just gone up again as well.

Raritan from Queens? No really, guys, have you tried making that trip?

Re: Looking for a home in NYC

Stay in Mystic where there's wind!

In all seriousness, coming from Queens I would go for N. Shore of LI as others mentioned. Reasonable moorings can be had in Port Washington, where there is a good community of sailors (contact Matt Port Washington Water Taxi : Execution Rocks Lighthouse Tower Climb).

A little farther out, I would recommend Oyster Bay Marine in Oyster Bay for a mooring. Great service, and a big community of classic boat owners.

The municipal marinas on LI are resident only and also have their heads screwed on backwards for non-resident rates ($6/ft per night for transients!)

You could also go for the CT side, but would probably have to go for a slip rather than a mooring unless you join a YC. Stamford and Norwalk are good hubs of transportation without being too far out.

Nice boat btw!

I forgot about Hempstead! A salty bunch. Mostly older folks and all sailors. I've actually seen people doing complete refits to boats out on a mooring.
