Re: Long Island Sound - Hopefully NYC to MTK

Orange Crush:

I did not see any charge for anchoring in Three Mile Harbor in your link. I did see a charge for using a town mooring $75 which personally I think is an outrageous fee even for the Hamptons. But, I bet you can anchor in the harbor for free if there is space. I did last year during labor day weekend.

I like a little riff-raff with my paradise.

Re: Long Island Sound - Hopefully NYC to MTK

mbianka,

I guess you're right. The first time I read the part about the mooring equipment quickly and I thought they were just referring to anchoring as 'mooring'... Is there a chance the Coast Guard was mistaken about anchoring in Montauk Harbor?

I liked the part about the non-resident fee being twice as much BEFORE the non-resident surcharge.

Re: Long Island Sound - Hopefully NYC to MTK

In reading the East Hampton lit. it seems as if they have a designated area for anchoring in Three Mile Harbor else you can use their $75/night mooring (which is not adequate for high winds! So why would anyone attach to one anyway?) The other costs on the sheet are those to drop a seasonal mooring. We always used to anchor in Three Mile Harbor (years ago) with no restrictions and it would seem that you can still anchor there as long as you stay in the designated area.

Montauk has very little room for anchoring unless you draw very little water. It's really not a sailboat place, more a great fishing port. Some of the best fishing in the world and best charter boat captains in Montauk.

Re: Long Island Sound - Hopefully NYC to MTK

Mattituck Harbor looks a bit shallow at 6.5 ft. My Catalina 30 is, as I recall, 5ft 6 inches or so (maybe less, but I haven't double checked yet). Useless, or (if I need it) just go in at low tide?

Re: Long Island Sound - Hopefully NYC to MTK

Channel is 5 feet at low tide, so go in with the tide. Anchorage is about 12 feet I think. There is a planning study being done to re-dredge the channel back to a depth of 7 feet and to a width of 80-100 feet as it has silted up since the original dredging of 1914.

Re: Long Island Sound - Hopefully NYC to MTK

There's a fuel dock on the north end of CI that you can only get to from the east side, but from there you can shoot north of Hart i. and back down to the north shore of Long Island. Beware the dock hands there- they will try to help you dock by using your stanchions as handlebars. :+) I second the Museum as well, We took my parents there why they came to visit us when we lived aboard on CI and they both loved it.
There's lots of good restaurants in Port Washington, and the water taxi will shuttle you around for about $8 a head. If you get there early enough, you can pick up one of the 8ish yellow moorings that are free. Some don't have pennants, and so if you have a good mooring clip you can almost always get one as every body else passes on them. (#7 and #8 I believe)
I attached a photo with some of the places in the area we frequent.
