Welcome to the site. I had my boat on the hard in Warwick for a number of years, finally got it in the water last year. We are now in the CT river, this is closer to my home. I have to tell you I do miss the clam fritters....You will find this a useful and fun site. Fair Winds...

Welcome aboard! I used to live in Newport on Spring Street (my backyard was the first black church in the US).

Hi David, I used to keep my boat in Old Warwick cove for a number of years, miss going out and digging little necks and grabbing lobsters off Newport. Living down here in Florida now, the boat doesn't get shrink wrapped anymore.

Old Warwick Cove?

Hi,
I was at Greenwich Bay Marina for 4 yrs and left to go south to Wickford as I was the only wood boat in a marina of (mostly) sea rays. Were you in the cove near Rocky point? Or the one near the Crow's Nest restaurant?
I'm hoping to find a catamaran in the next few yrs to live aboard and explore Fla to S. America

Old Warwick cove is the inlet at Oakland beach. Right where they had the dough-boy stand
