Greetings from Manhasset Bay/Long Island Sound

Greetings fellow sailors,

I recently bought a Sabre 34-2 and have been taking it out at least once or twice a week (weather permitting). I have been sailing on rentals for the last 4-5 years but just starting to assess the responsibilities that come with being a boat owner. I will need a lot of help from you guys in the upcoming months and years but in the immediate future, I would appreciate if you can recommend a rigger in western LIS (especially someone that has experience with Sabres) and a yard for winter storage that will allow me to update some stuff on the boat.

Thanks a lot in advance and hope to see you on the water.

-Darshan

Thanks, Sander, I will give them a call.
Do you have any recommendations for riggers?

Re: Greetings from Manhasset Bay/Long Island Sound

I have very fond memories of sailing out of Manhasset Bay. Growing up my family sailed out of Knickerbocker Yacht Club in Manhasset Bay, which I understand no longer exists. In the day we would haul out at a yard on City Island or at McMichael's.

But that is a long time ago and so I am afraid that I can't offer any relevant and contemporary information.

Good luck with your search,
Jeff

Re: Greetings from Manhasset Bay/Long Island Sound

Welcome Darshan to SN and Manhasset bay, and congratulations with new boat.
Long time, well respected rigger Dave James retired recently and
Al Lizza has taken over business. Works out of Manhasset Bay Shipyard, next to Manhasset Bay Yacht club.
I have not used Al and cant recommend from first hand experience but if he is anything like Dave was,
you would be well served.
My yard Gulfway in Sheets Creek, north of the small north town dock, cannot haul boats your size.
Are you aware/in touch with the LISSA Long Island Sabre Assoc. much info and good people.
Can put you in touch with good friend and long time Sabre owner, who knows everything Sabre
and is local out of Little Neck bay.

Thanks, Hugosalt.

One of my friends on the bay also said the same thing, he knew Dave and would absolutely recommend him but have only heard of Al, I guess I will contact him and see how it goes before I sail to another place.

I joined the Sabre owners yahoo group. LISSA web portal does not seem to work, I tried lissasabre.org and lissa-sabre.org but both of them give me spam alerts, do you know if they have a different domain?

I would love to get in touch with your friend in Little Neck bay, you can send me his name and number via PM, I will contact him.

Thanks, tempest.

I saw a few Mk1's and many Mk2's, Mk1's are solidly built but I just liked the interior layout of Mk2's.

It's a nice little bay with great restaurants, it is also the closest to our home.
