Lindenhurst LI to Setauket Harbor LI

Hi name is Scotty im new here:my self and my boat partner Katie and her BF sailed our recently purchased and fitted out 1988 Oday 272LE from Lindenhurst LI out the Jones Inlet(had to take on about five 8-10 foot rollers but good depth under the keel in the channel so no issue)to the only marina at Barren Island, Brooklyn NY in Jamiaca Bay across from Floyd Bennet Field.I forget the name but nice slips with shore power,bathrooms but NO showers. Then up thru NY Harbor to run Hell gate (by the Brothers Island's: facinating history Google it)with the tide for a 7-9 knot run to the Thogs Neck/Whitstone bridges. Stayed second night at Brewers Yacht Yard in Sea Cliff,Glen Cove LI. $2.75 per foot. Nice bathrooms and showers,slip and many dinner/pub choices(try PJ Galleghers in town) walking distance from the boat then on to Port Jeff/Setauket Harbor to the mooring at Setauket Harbor Marine which is our boats new home.

Hi Scotty,

Sounds like a great trip, one that I'd like to do in reverse with my wife and kids this summer.

We just bought a new-to-us C&C 29 which will be on our mooring in Setauket Harbor in early June. Her name is Circe and is a grey hulled. Its a beautiful little harbor. I'll look for you and your boat when we're there.

See ya in the Harbor!

~ Oban

Re: Lindenhurst LI to Setauket Harbor LI

Sounds like a fun trip.
I've experienced rollers (breaking waves) that you mentioned coming out of Fire Island Inlet on an ebbing tide. The outgoing tide can turn 3' ocean waves into some nasty beasts near the inlets of the Atlantic.
I got to go to North Brother Island a few years ago and view the place in decay/nature taking over. We got permission from NYC Parks for a photo documentary trip. I was mostly there to carry gear and look around. Interesting history to the place. Typhoid Mary was rumored to have been kept there and it's last use was as a drug rehab place in the 1960's before they let it fall into natural decay. Wildlife has mostly reclaimed most of both of the Brother Islands now.
I grew up in Sea Cliff so I know Brewer's yard down in Glen Cove. You can usually get a "transient mooring" from either the SC Yacht Club or Hempstead Harbor Yacht Club for about $40 per night. Same or similar in most harbors on the LI Sound.

Nice trip report.

We always stay at the Setauket Yacht Club mooorings at Port Jeff on our trip every year from the Chesapeake. Pleople are friendly and the town has a lot of great little restaurants.

My first experience with Port Jeff was a miserable windy rainy afternoon where the ferry almost ran us down and we holed up at Mt Misery for a fog filled day. I have a different outlook of the place now.

Congrats on the new boat

Dave

Re: Lindenhurst LI to Setauket Harbor LI

Thanks for all the responses and good wishes. Oban, our boat has a gray hull with a red trim stripe. Name is Slipstream but the old name Feng Shui is still on (unfortunately in 3 places but its vinyl so hopefully ill have it off this weekend;Im told if I have a attractive female wee on the bow its ok to do this..lol) Anyhow come say hello when you're on your mooring.
We don't have a dinghy yet so we couldnt use moorings as the services are spotty before Memorial day.
Caleb, I think i saw the pics from your trip to the Brother Islands online when i researched it during our layover in Seacliff.

Re: Lindenhurst LI to Setauket Harbor LI

Scotty,

I'll drop by when we're on the mooring.

FYI: We've got a beater dingy chained up on the shore and it rules. Zero dollars, no waiting, and its a great workout - especially when I have to row a buncha people out to the boat (though I do motor the boat up to the town dock at high tide when we've got a lot of people/stuff to load and unload.)

See you out there.

~ Oban

Good report. I cruised that route in '93 on my Pennant 20, with one more stop, having left Fire Island Inlet, I stopped at Short Beach.
Now I sail WS out of Mount Sinai. See you on the Sound.

Re: Lindenhurst LI to Setauket Harbor LI

In addition for anyone going up (North)the East River the concensus we got was to arrive at the Battery(tip of Manhatten)approximately two hours after low tide to let the tide bring us thru Hell Gate and it worked out very well. Looking forward to meeting new friends at our new home and on the sound !!!
