Mt. Sinai moorings are offered to Town of Brookhaven residents first, then non residents. I have no idea if there are any mooring spots left but it's worth a call.

My dink is a 10' alum RIB with a 94 # 8HP OB... I can't get this onto a rack or drag it above the high water mark and then drag it in at low sometime and then board the dink. I need a floating dock.

My solution is simply to have a small close to the launching ramp/dock mooring I can row a few tens of yards to with a inexpensive inflatable that fits in my car.. or a old row boat that I can leave beached. This boat only will be used to go from the launching ramp/dock to the close mooring... The boat is about 1 mile out from there... hence my dink has large tubes, a large motor and is dry and fast. I could use a smaller / lighter motor, but there are times when it would be a long wet ride.

I can get a mooring and dinghy tie up out east but the car ride is 2x as long.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
