I'm going to be sailing down the Hudson
around July 4th and I was thinking of timing my trip to so I could see the fireworks show off Manhattan. I was thinking I'd anchor
above the GW Bridge until dark and then cruise
through the area back to my marina in Brooklyn
I know the Coast Guard has a million special rules governing 4th of July fireworks and I'm having trouble making sense of all the press releases. I'm not trying to anchor
anywhere in New York
Harbor and I know better than to go near the East River on that night. Does anyone have experience with 4th of July on NYC
waters? Does my plan sound realistic? Is there anything else I should be aware of or concerned about?
