Brad, I started a new thread called "NE Winter Storage - In Water Vs. Land"

The first and last long trip I took in this boat was last October from Patchogue (where I bought it) to Sea Cliff. I lost the engine within the first three hours and ran aground three times (two were caused by me and one while Sea Tow was 'assisting' us.) We told the Sea Tow captain that we were following the charts and his response was, "yeah, you can't really go by the charts in here".


Thanks again,

Michael
That sounds like it was quite the trip LOL! I actually kept my first boat, a Mark 25 (25' sloop similar to a C&C) on the Great South Bay in Patchogue 4 years ago. As crazy as it sounds, that Sea Tow Captain was right about not being able to follow the charts down there. They provide a good reference point but that bay is so shallow and the sand and shoals are always shifting. You just really have to take your time, try and follow the markers (even if some are pots and pans or a stick or tree lol). The only upside is that the bottom is all sand so usually they are all just soft groundings.

I'm not sure if it is Tappan Marina or another one over near Sea Cliff but I go sailing out of there sometimes with a friend of mine. His buddy owns the 1939 yawl, "Golden Eye" which has a black hull and is about 47 ft or so long and is a beautiful wooden boat. Sometimes I crew on it on the Wednesday night beer can races. Its a real nice harbor.

I'm not 100% sure but I think I might be taking my boat over there next weekend for Memorial Day. I'll keep an eye out for you now that I know your boat's name. Mine is "Capricorn" incase you see me.

Regards,
nick

Hey Nick, 'Golden Eye' is in Tappen marina a few docks over from me. It's a beautiful boat but I haven't been out sailing with him yet. We both wintered there so I saw him a lot. When I see a boat like that, all I can think of is how much time and effort it takes to keep it going.

I should be around at some point over the weekend and I hope to see you there but I'm heading out to Oyster Bay for a night or two with my wife.

Regards,

Probably not going to Block anymore

I was so excited for this trip; the tides were right coming and going for the 9th through the 14th, but unfortunately the two guys I was going with were each called into work unexpectedly. I might just go by myself for the adventure of it but in all likelihood, Block will just have to wait a little longer for me.

Why not ask for crew here on Sailnet. That's what I did.

I think a request for crew to Block on a Bene 505 is a tad more appealing than a Cat 27 ....Certainly not complaining, I'm just saying... :-)

It's not the dance floor, it's the dancing. Sailboats are great no matter what the size.

Give DavidPM a shout. If you stop off at Westbrook CT, you may be able to convice him with a good meal and some cookies.

Brad

Mike,
Say when and I'm in. I'm in Port Washington but can meet you anywhere or you can come to PW and we can take my boat. CAL 27, tillerpilot, radar, chartplotter, etc... let me know if you're interested. Its definately not the boat, I'd go in a canoe with good company.

-Nick

Nick, Mike, Brad...I was checking into mooring/anchoring in Mt Sinai next weekend, when I
found this thread...I used to post on sailnet Long Island
but did not realize it was still active. This is Great!
If any interest, I would be interested in cruising multiple
boats or yours/mine(30' reasonable equiped) with
reasonable/responsible sailors. I finally have the time
and my wife not into long cruises. Hugo
