Boy I must be asleep at the helm.... dmkey, not cameraderie should have been the subject of my last two posts.. That's how you can tell a newbie when you see one...I guess. Well at least I had the right idea.

Actually I was the original poster. We ponied up and paid a guy to trailer it.
We had. It's great to put a boat in late in the season. Strongs gave us a great deal on dock slip 300 from August to thanksgiving.

This year we bough a beach house in southold so now I'm looking for a trailer for my Catalina 22 - wing keel. I'll trailer to my own back yard for the winter and I'll get on the waiting list for a creek mooring.

Anyway we love bombing around in the peconic around robins island and what not. Let me know of if you have any good ideas re a trailer for my wing keel.

I used to trailer a keelboat, 20' long, draft of 3'2". The trailer was a custom job, with retracting square pipe stands. You could launch and recover from it, but I would only do it in spring and fall. There are keelboat trailers out there, you see them for race boats. Watch craigslist and ebay, check local marinas or yachtclubs with small keel racing fleets.

Water Route

If you pick a good weather window and good engine and all other necessary equipment it could be a fun trip.
As mentioned already all bridges open and when you get to the canal which check the tides for the canal could be very fast moving water,at one time was a crank up system for lift a mast on both sides but don't know still working.
Once through canal into Peconic it is a nice motor or sail to Southhold but need some charts for the trip.
What ever you decide prepare well and you could stop in canal I think at the county marina or other marina's in canal for fuel or food.
I sailed the Peconic for many years and many shallow area's,moved my boat to greenport for few great sailing years and now in West coast Florida,Punta Gorda.
Have fun with your 22 ft sailboat in the Peconic I with 4ft and than 5 ft draft sailboats you will have fun.
