Re: Is a WW Potter 15 Good To Sail NYC Area?

Long Island Sound has lots of interesting places to visit within range of a weekend cruise for you. You will want to work with the current to get in and out of the World's Fair Marina, or you will spend a lot of time not getting much of anywhere. Buy a copy of Eldridge's Tide & Current book and make sure your motor is in good shape with plenty of fuel. Fair winds!

I would think that there are better options than worlds fair to put in, if you are trailering that will allow you to sail sooner without having to motor out and worry about strong currents. Something on Manhasset bay Perhaps?

Thanks again guys. Any thoughts about Sheepshead Bay mooring fields? This way maybe I could keep it in water for the season if the cost works out etc. does anyone use the place?

Haven't been down there in a while, and I have no idea if you can get a mooring except through the various clubs. But where else can you get to a mooring by public transportation and have such a wide range of restaurants to visit before heading home. (G)

There's also the Gateway Marina, across the road from Floyd Bennett Field, lots of fairly shallow and protected water, and that's also a short bus ride form the subway or an easy car trip, although it is more in the middle of nowhere for any other purpose.
