I would not try running the inside all along the south shore of LI inside unless you are very familiar with it.

In the regional section feel free to check out Norther NJ Spots thread.
Wherer will you be living when you move here?

Any questions feel free to PM me a message.

I agree with Tom. You can run the inside all the way out east, but its real damgerous. Its a pretty easy run up to Fire Island, but after that it gets tricky. Nautical mile is located in Freeport on the west side of Woodcleft Canal..

Maybe this will help

Very true!! If you have a nice size boat I would run offshore.... much easier. You can usually get by going inside the inlet on the weekends if you take it slow and follow the traffic. I think the nautical mile and patty's is gonna get pretty busy if people don't go to fire island. I just find it hard to swallow that $25 docking fee and $21.99 buffet at patty's

So I assume the inside does not have channel markers?

Yes there are markers. However, in many spots, if you stray off just a bit, you are in the mud. I dont know about other parts of the country but there, you will see people walking across this huge bay area, pulling there boats along ( usually smaller outboard boats ) while digging up clams.

Has anything about the great south bay changed since 2007? I can see how the inlet could be treacherous but once I got thru the inlet, followed the channels to the bay, it was pretty wide open from there and all the way out to Patchogue. Over the eyars I've found the inside, west of FI to Jones to be the trickier area.

I really like making runs from here (Sandy Hook) to Jones (Nautical Mi.). It's roughly 35 minutes on the ocean at 60 mph from the tip of Sandy Hook....

also, from where I live, NY harbor is 20 minutes across the bay, from there I can head up the Hudson (Haverstraw) our out East to LI Sound (Sand Hole)!!

The other advantage of where I live (Sandy Hook) is I can also head south to the Barnegat or Pt. Pleasant area whichs opens up a totally different boating perspective...

As far as living goes, I'm less than an hour to NYC by train (express) and 35 minutes from lower manhattan via the ferry.

My local area is nice to boat around as well, we have Sandy Hook bay and the two rivers (Navesink and Shrewsbury) when there's nothing to do but I like to travel with my boat instead of racing up/down the river or bay so our location is pretty good for me.

I've heard there is a pretty good boat scene on Fire Island- bars and restaurants you can pull the boat right up to. That is something we miss in LI Sound vs. say South Florida. I was gonna try to make a run to Fire Island this summer.

Plenty of good spots for it!! The last one I remember being around Long Beach/Freeport was around 9 years ago (I was 12). It's what got me into high perf boats!
