CalebD Tarrytown marina is right by the train station. Many of the eastern shore towns on the Hudson are convenient to their train stations from the river as the tracks often go right along the river.
In addition to October being the time of year they begin removing docks, it is also usually the time of year that the leaves start changing color. I would like to do a similar trip going only as far as Beacon; perhaps in mid-October or earlier.
Traveling up river with the tide is the way to go. You can be fighting a 2 knot current if you go against the tide.
Commercial traffic (tugs etc.) monitor vhf ch. 13 I believe.
"The Cruising Guide to the New England Coast" has a section devoted to the marinas on the Hudson.
Good luck, have fun and stay warm.

AlanBrown No public marinas in either Hudson or Athens that I can recall. I suggest you contact Catskill Marina or Hopponose to see if they will still be accepting transients. October is the time of year they begin removing their docks for the winter. They are located across from one another on Catskill Creek.

Hudson River Cuise

Hi- Sounds like a good idea. I am now thinking about later in the summer but my time frame isn''t set yet. I will have to check the rules of my yard, but maybe we could swap moorings for 3 weeks or so. My boat will be Moored in Noank CT this season. Noank (part of Mystic CT)is located at the mouth of the Mystic River. It''s a no frills marina, no launch or pool etc, but the location is great. If you find the Mystic Harbor on a chart you will see Noank and Morgan point. My boat will be moored on the East side of Morgan Point. I work at one of the area casino''s and my hours are late, so it might take me a few days to call you. My email is

Talk to you soon.

Hi- We''re planning a trip also this summer, but the reverse of yours. I''m a Nyack Boat Club member, with a 300 lb. mooring. If interested, I can make this available to you, which includes launch service to the club. I can also give you some ''local knowledge, if we speak.
Additionally, I am looking for accomodations for my 30'' Ericson, for a few weeks even for a month. Will be willing to rent.

Like to hear from you.

Hudson River Cuise

Several times during the summer I meet friends in Palenville NY. They own 2 cabins up in the mountains. I usually drive up, but decided next year to combine a cruise/camping/golfing trip.
People laugh at me when I tell them I can''t wait to play golf when I go camping. Wait till they here I will be packing my golf clubs on my sailboat to go camping and hiking in the mountains.

I believe the closest marina is in Catskill and I want to be able to check my boat and maybe take guests out for a daysail without driving too far.

*If anyone wants to see a breathtaking waterfall, try Katterskill Falls (near hunter/palenville NY). You can hike to the bottom or drive/short walk to the top. Simply amazing!!

Rob,the farther north on the Hudson you get,
the fewer sailboats (for obvious reasons). There are a couple of sailboat friendly marinas in Catskill. With any of the channels (Kingston, Saugerties, Catskill) plan to motor in as the wind dies due to being blocked by terrain most of the time.

If you plan to be on the boat at least half
the time, I''d do the driving tradeoff and
keep the boat in Kingston....try Hideaway,
Rondout Yachtbasin or Certified as they are
close to the shore facilities and have nice
amenities. There are a number of marinas up
the creek but are far from the action and
require auto for convenience. You can always
run up to Catskill for a few days.
