If you like powerboats or cruisers, it's all around you. It's where the big Boyz hang! Running the Ocean is just another day of boating. I bet just walking around the docks you meet a half dozen people that did the NY to Florida Trip as well as the Bahamas.

Townsends is a really cool place but its further down the cove from Greenport. Its a little bit of a walk but not bad. If you can get a slip at Brewers they have a free shuttle that runs you into town. If you happen to have an inflateable with a small outboard bring it. The kids and yourself will have alot of galavanting.

I stayed at Townsend last August. Walked to town everyday w/ 5yr and 6yr old. Its about a 8 minute walk. Very doable.
Stidd has there plant there too, cool seats.

Fire Island has no cars, and is a great place for kids!!! Awsome beaches.

Greenport... Townsend Manor Inn. 93octane. good pool and a walk to town. Town has a carousel w/ brass ring. Greenport is classic East End w/o the pretensiosness(sp?) of Hamptons.

If you do LI sound run, here's how i'd do it.
Run and stay the connecticut side running east.
1. Essex CT - 1nite
2. Mystic CT (seaport) - 1nite
3. Newport (big homes from turn o' the century). 1-2 nite
4. Marthas Vinyard... Edgartown is the place to stay (Jaws filmed there!) 1-2nite
5. Back west to Block Island 1-2 nite
6. Montauk... 1 nite
7. Greenport 1-2 nite (can go to shelter island and Sag harbor from there.
8. Run from Greenport, thru the Shinnecock Canal and run the outside to Fire Island.
9. Fire Island for 2 nites.
10 Head West, come in Jones Beach, have lunch in Freeport or @ Paddy Magees or Jordans Lobster. Run back out of East Rockaway Inlet to the city.

Should be a great managable trip.
Every day should be 3hrs, or much less on the boat.
Sorry, I've got no pics.

BTw.. how old are the kids you'll be with?
WOW......Gotta hand it to you.....awesome itinerary.....you really know the area. Some great ideas on your list.
