Default Trailering Question for NYC

Thinking about towing the boat thru the Lincoln tunnel to Liberty State Park and avoiding the GW bridge. Is there any issue with trailering a 33ft boat with an Excursion thru the Lincoln tunnel?? Has anyone done it before. Is this set up too long to stay in your lane and not be able to made a wide turn thru the curves without the trailer going into the oncoming lane??

It's permissible, but why? Personally I wouldn't trust the person in the lane next to me.

You should be fine...as I remember, trucks can go through there also. You are under the legal (width) limit. I don't know about lenght limit.

Its not as much a legal question as a manuver question. Ive never been thru there and just dont want to have a problem. Its way more convenient then going up to the GW to then travel back South again on the turnpike.

I don't think it will be so bad once your in the tunnel. The problem I see is before you enter. There is so much traffic trying to get in the entrance -NYC side- (all entrances) you would have to be real careful. If your going to do it, go at an off time.

Active, run west outta Debs inlet, and take a nice wide turn to starboard after brooklyn.
This should get you running north under the Verranzano.
LSP is on the left.
Thats the easiest (and most fun) way i can think of getting the boat there.

I agree with Storm it's probably easier to just run it.
