25 Hors, try to time your trip from Greenport thru Shinnecock and down past West Hampton Beach so that it is high tide in the State Boat Channel past West Hampton Beach. The channel is EXTREMELY narrow and many boats go aground in it, so have I. The good news is that it is all sand.

Do you have a place in mind for Port Jeff ? There is Danfords which is a little pricey but does have shower facilities. The town of Brookhaven has transient slips and may be cheaper but no showers. I would strongly suggest that being this falls on a weekend a reservation should be made ASAP. If push comes to shove you can use my mooring in pirates cove which is a short hop to town. Use 1 boat to dock at Danfords for the showers and site seeing. This may save you some coin for gas. Be happy to help you out.

One more thing...while heading towards Greenport there's a HUGE rock about a mile from shore called Miller's Rock a few miles east of Mt Sinai inlet. If you want I'll send you my Long Island chart and I also have the big book of all marinas with good navigation suggestions. Email me your address and I'll send it you as long as you return it.
