Filled with many aerial photographs that give a very clear depiction of areas you may be transiting. I would never sail this area without it, cost was $40.00
I agree!
Cruising Guide To The New England Coast is far superior to those glossy cruising guides that you see at West Marine etc. Some of them (Embassy) are just shopping guides and I really question whether the writers actually sailed to the harbors they covered.

Am heading south from Stamford Conn..
Would like to stay 2 or 3 days in Hudson river before stoving off south but Marina seem to want about $200.00 a night to hook up. I have a 50' sloop,...anyone have a hint to a cheaper place or mooring balls it that local?

Go up the Hudson a bit and anchor at Upper Nyack, just north of the Tappanzee Bridge. Lots of room and you can get ashore at the Yacht Club or the smaller club north of the UNYC.

The problem with heading to Nyack if ultimately going south is that you will be approximately 20 miles up river in the opposite direction you wish to travel. You could look into the Atlantic Highlands, a very well known cruising destination near Sandy Hook just souh of the Veranzanno Bridge, sheltered and in the direction you will be heading. I believe the Highlands have reasonable town moorings and you should be able to make it from Stanford in the day considering how strong the winds have been blowing here the last coupkle of days.

Yah, cabo, there's no easy and cheap place to duck up the Hudson as you round the Battery. Overnight at Liberty Marina or one of the other jersey marinas that are just around the corner, is about the most reasonable bet IF you want to stay in that area.

Heading up the Hudson...Remember it is also tidal, it can take longer to travel the Hudson that you'd expect. By all means, daytrip up and eyeball things, but anchoring free inside Sandy Hook would be the better choice, if you can time it that way.

There are also a number of easily overlooked spots, like Little Bay in the shadow of the Throg's Neck Bridge, where you can anchor for free if nightfall catches you where you hadn't planned to be.

I have found this net to be most helpful and that is due to the quality of folks aboard.
Thanks for the tips.
Anyone want to head south? Loose crew at the Hudson... heading to Annapolis,.. to ship Cadence, back to San Diego. Once through the canal is enough.

You may want to download the 1-4 Coast Pilots.

United States Coast Pilot®

Not sure what commercial guides are available.

hi sandy hook is fine all weather anchorage but not the hudson riv.many places to anchor in hudson jersey side is best,less bottom debris than nyc side more shallow so less comercial traffic ,just n of gw bridge is excellent or indeed off most areas under pallisades esp where a cut forms a mud out wash platform under water where streams wash sediment off these high cliffs excellent holding and peaceful,def worth it. once in haveastraw bay just get over to shallows on w side . hudson riv mud is the best holding any where. if you want the east side off manhattan [strong currents] pick up one of many moorings at 79st boat basin,nyc has a dingy dock here so you can go ashore in a nice part of city.

Agree with the 79th Street mooring suggestion.

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Kur.
Is your departure imminent?

How'd you get from Shelter Island Marina, San Diego (Sept 08) to New York, so quickly?
