Re: Irene: Hurricane Holes Near Eastern Long Island ?

I think your best bet would be Three Mile Harbor in East Hampton. I rode out Hurricane Earl there last year:
on my 35 lb Bruce and 100 feet of chain. Which was my plan A never had to resort to plan B, C & D. All the boats (about 10) came through fine at anchor there. Good holding in 10 to 15 feet of water and just a few hours from Greenport. Forget Setauket to shallow and to crowded. Mattituck offers excellent protection but, there is not a lot of room once it fills up. Further west on Long Island Cold Spring Harbor offers lot's of room in 15 -20 feet of water and protection from every direction except north. Great holding too. Oyster Bay could be an option too. Port Jeff might be an option if you can't make it further west. I still say Three Mile Harbor would be your best bet. Keep a close eye on the track and pick your spot for minimal fetch and you should be fine.
