CT to FL Day 1
Stamford, CT to Freeport, NY
Departed from Stamford at 0830... stopped for the night in Great Kills Harbor at Great Kills Park Marina at 1500... had tried to contact the marina all day with no luck... shortly after docking a young man came down the dock to the boat... announcing that they are closed today normally but he happen to be there winterizing boats and saw us arrive... he said we could come up and pay at the office... $6.00 per foot.... NOT!!! Told him we would not be staying. Last time we stayed here we stayed for 2 nights and paid total $145.00... we found out that it is now new owners.
Made a few calls and found dockage across the harbor at Staten Island Yacht Sales... not cheap but much better at $3.50 per foot and $40 for electric... We were securely docked for the night at 1530. Our location for night N40°32.520', W074°08.426’
. We traveled today for 6.5 hours covering 48.0 nautical miles averaging 7.4 knots.
When in the East River we had a seaplane land beside us... was really weird watching it land just 1/8 mile off our side...
