Re: Twenty miles from Connecticut to Guatamala

I can do that too. Why start the motor if the boat seems to be sailing right up to the dock? For another month maybe until it gets too cold.

Re: Twenty miles from Connecticut to Guatamala

Hey,

I hear you. However, we were headed to Block Island and I didn't want to head any further west than I had too. While a quiet evening on the hook would have been nice, my wife and kids like to get off the boat and walk around. Orient By The Sea met those needs. The location is excellent, and for the 12 hours or so that I was there is was fine.

It is not a place I would suggest going to as a destination, but for a place to spend a night when you're trying to get somewhere it wasn't bad. Just not that if you have a large vessel it will be a real test of your boat handling skill.

Barry

Go a few miles farther around the point on the way to Greenport. Hang a right up along the beach and drop the hook north of the fish traps. Fire up the grill and have a quiet evening.

I don't get far from home on my boat. However, anytime I can sit at a bar, drink a beer, and look at my boat, is a good day.

Would it allow you to get back on the boat, if you could actually find it?

It is very tight that is for sure.

Re: Twenty miles from Connecticut to Guatamala

Hey,

I see you found Orient By The Sea marina. I stayed there for one night on my way to Block Island. That will be the only time I stay at Orient By The Sea Marina.

The people were pleasant enough, but getting and out is a bear. First you need to identify the entrance, then you need to get in, and THEN you need to find the slip. None of that is easy.

My visit was even more interesting because we came in and were told to tie up at the large dock in front. I did that, then about 15 minutes later the owner comes by and tells me I need to move. I thought he was kidding, but he wasn't. So I needed to move my 35' boat with a 12' beam around the back where there is about 15' width, then turn around and be able to get out the next morning.
