Re: Raritan Bay, NJ side - Looking for Info on Slips, Ramps Trailered Storage
If you take a look at Google earth and follow the creek in, there's a right hand turn in the creek before you get to Morgan that leads to Lockwoods Marina. The Bridges are managable you just have to understand that the Hwy Bridge opens on the hour. The RR bridge opens on demand..but there's often a wait if a train is due. But they do add time to your day. Further down, the bay is Keyport YC ( moorings) , Across the bay is Raritan YC ( moorings), Then there's the Atlantic Highlands ( moorings and slips). On Staten Island there's Great Kills. One place you might want to check out is Perth Amboy Municipal Marina...no bridges, easy access to the water, train station reasonably nearby.
I know where you keep your boat now, It's a great spot on Barnaget Bay, I'm guessing the weekend commute it getting to you?
Surpisingly, there are not as many options as one might think in the NYC/NJ north, and there are trade-offs to all of them.
