eastern long island winter storage
 
am new to long island (up from the chesapeake) and am looking for a nice yard on eastern long island to put my hunter 37c for the winter - its about 42 loa and would like a place that lets me do my own winterizing and bottom work. am in sag harbor but open to any recommendations in eastern LI or the sound.

Have you looked into 3 Mile Harbor Marina? Seems like a fairly laid back place.

Try Brick Cove Marina in Southold/Greenport area.

Good Luck. Let us know how you make out.

Don't know about bottom work, but I seem to remember
Active Captain worked out a good winter storage deal with
Mattamar Marina in Mattituck on the north fork.

I use Harbor Marina in 3 Mile Harbor. Not inexpensive, but competent.

A lot of places don't let you paint the bottom, but all the other work is usually fair game. (Just no going up the mast on the hard, and don't move any stands.)

Brad

Should I dare to ask how you've come to know this? Didn't Manhasset Bay YC allow you to do some rudder work DIY? Did they let you paint the bottom there?

There are fewer and fewer DIY yards these days. If none of the marinas in 3 Mi. Harbor pass muster I'd check out as far away as Mt. Sinai, Port Jeff, even Huntington/Northport.

Matituck is a good choice,,,just go in after mid tide. Thats a f...ing scary shallow creek to pick you way down.

Hey Caleb,

Generally, the agreements state no bottom painting. They didn't charge too much though, IMHO.

FIberglass and epoxy work are fair game.

Sorry Dave, Know Mattituck can be scary at low tide 1st time in...at
least it's sand, I've become familiar/casual over the years.
Beats number of deep water Ct. ports lined with underwater rocks!
When you come back up next year, will try to come up with some less harrowing gems.
