All good Points and very thorough. Thanks HS, JJ, and WS.

It sounds like there are many great options from Sinai moving west. I will look into all and keep you guys in the loop.

Transportation to sail is certainly a big variable in the decision. Currently it takes me 1 hour + by rail to Freeport or a little more driving. The brooklyn marina can take almost as long with traffic or by subway to taxi. There may be an opp for mooring in Redhook in the harbor for next season. Would be 20 minutes walking from where I live in Park Slope but it is private and a long shot for now. In the end, If it is a sailing day, I will get moving early enough to be on water by sunup regardless of where she is.

WS - Paul mentioned you are in Sinai. I look forward to meeting next visit out.

Time of transit and close access to the LIRR being a consideration, you might want to look at:
Manhasset Bay: can walk from train, close to restaurants (by water and land) hardware stores, a local west marine.
Steppingstone Marina in Great Neck, town run marina
(allows non-residents for small prem) great park setting
with concerts sat/sun in the summer, launch service
5 am to 11-12 pm. right on sound facing City Island a mile across the sound.###disclosure...I'm partial, my marina.###
Both above are on the Port Washington line of the railroad, which means no Jamacia,about 30 minutes from Penn station.
Oyster bay further out but waterfront is close to railroad.
If you consider Manhasset Bay or Steppingstone let me
know I can show you around. Hugo

I belong to the Hempstead Harbour Club that was mentioned earlier. PM me if you'd like some info.

Coming from the city, I wouldn't consider going farther out than Northport. Manhasset Bay, Sea Cliff/Glen Cove, Oyster Bay, Huntington, and Northport all have LIRR train service. Station in Oyster Bay is closest to the waterfront. Others would require a cab. All have a mix of marinas with slips, commercial moorings and yacht clubs. And while the wind is not as reliable in the summer as the south shore, it's not as bad as you are lead to believe. And the deep water and endless cruising options make up for the lighter summer winds.
