Re: Marthas Vineyard, Greenport, Block Island, Port Jeff, Matiuk, Stonington, New Lo

Of course, Mattituck.
I've spent a night in there tied up to the town dock, way up at the head of the harbor. It was free but a bit noisy as it is next to the public launch ramp. I was there 10 years ago though. Sweet old village though. More small power boats then sail boats.
Dog leg entrance was a little tricky but we made it with only 3'6" draft. I wouldn't want to try getting in there after dark.

Re: Marthas Vineyard, Greenport, Block Island, Port Jeff, Matiuk, Stonington, New Lo

You will be good in Mattituck Creek with 4.6 ft. draft.
Have been in/out almost every year as we have family nearby.
When making 1st 90 degree to port...don't cut to close to port
as there is some shoaling..there should(?) be a green buoy.
When you get to the basin at the end of the creek there is good holding if you choose to anchor. Very protected but not a lot of room.
I have left my 30' boat on my 35# delta for a long day into night
unattended with no problem.
Approx 15 minute walk into nice little town. Love Lane nice stores.
If you are interested in the north fork vineyards, there are a number close by...but (I think)not close enough to walk.
Hear good things about Love Lane Kitchen but I have not eaten their...Old Mill Inn is literally on the creek about half way in on your starboard side red building, have not been since it has changed hands...was very good.
At end of creek in basin towards port is Mattamar Marina think they have pool very nice...used to have good italian restaurant but don't
know if it is still there. In front of you/slightly to starboard will be the town dock.
Enjoy,
Hugo

Anchored back in Matituck. Came in at dead low tide to beat advancing T Storms on the Sound. We were thinking of going down to Port Jeff but the throng storms made us do the prudent thing. Beautiful anchorage reminds us of a couple of our favorites on the Chester or Wye River. Narrow shallow depths white knuncled the whole way in. Saw 4.8 and we draw 4.6. With. 5 foot tide change any other time wouldn't be so bad.

Heading to Northport to have dinner with Bene505, Craigtoo, Xort. Xort and we will sail together to Atlantic Highlands, then Barnegat Inlet.

Today coming out Matituck not quiet as nerve racking with it at mid tide depths 7 + in the shallow spots yesterday. First 4 hours today going through some rain and the front passage with winds gusting to 35 on the nose, steady 20 all day predicted on the nose. First real rin we have seen in two weeks. Weather has been seller.

Looks like your luck with the weather is going to continue. Next 4-5 days look great.

If you are off Hempstead Harbour tomorrow or the day after in the afternoon, look for a Cal 33 named "First Tracks". Expect to be out daysailing both days.

Jim, we will be passing Hempstead Harbor at 8AM. We have an express to catch at Hell Gate. Today was a tough travel day with winds on the nose all day. Great dinner with friends tonight. Tomorrow three boats will be headed down through the "gate" to Atlantic Highlands. Will be nice o have company to at least Barnegat on Tthursday

Just blew through Hell Gate at 11.5. Standing waves of 2ft at Harlem River, UN, Con Ed, and the Williamsburg Bridge. Lots ofFerry andGrey Line boats. Headed for Ambrose Light then Atlantic highlands for diesel, water and to anchor behind the breakwater for the night. The two boats who took the trip down the East River are a little ways behind. Beautiful day allowed us to get a final 15 knot broad reach down the LI Sound to Manhasset Bay, almost to the Throgs Neck Bridge.
If we knew a good place to anchor in Manesquan we would have continued.

Tomorrow Barnegat Inletl
