Yes, Liberty landing does have fuel. I believe it's 89 octane tops, though. Haverstraw has a fuel dock also.

There are a 2 or 3 fuel stops along the NJ side north of the G.W Bridge. They are at these Small marinas. The price for gas is much less than Liberty , Haverstraw, or Tarry Town. I paid less for gas there than I paid at a pump in NY on the way to the launch. Just to let you know. The Tarry Town marina is just 1/2 mile or so north of the Tapanzee Bridge. I am not sure what octane gas they all sell but I do know That the Haverstraw marina has higher octane. I hope this helps.

The marina you are referring to, about 5 miles north of the George Washington bridge, is a NJ state run marina, and therefor has the least expensive gas on the river...but only regular octane.

The next place up the river is the Tappan Zee marina in Piermont, on the NJ side of the river, just south of the TZ bridge, but they only have regular octane as well. there are thre marinas right next to each other, it is one closest to the bridge

The Tarrytown marina just north of the bridge on the NY side also does not have higher octane fuel

Hope this helps

Any OSO members looking to leave from the upper Hudson river...we are launching out of Catskill at 8am....bound for a rendevous in Newburgh with other fellow OSO members (hopefully) and then heading to the Raft up.


Is 10 am the approx time everyone is in the Newburgh area is leaving???

Thanks
Bo

Sorry about the food Jen! It's looking more like I will leave the big boat home and run the 13 footer for one more run on the Hudson. So far I have one boat that is willing to hang with me this year. Last year finding myself without anyone around started to make me think twice about this year. When i showed up at Chelsea Piers at the end of the event, not too many people realized I was even running in it. So if something did happen, no one would have known for some time. Perhaps I will ask Billy Frenz to run off a check list as people turn in their cards so they know everyone made it back to port. Afterall, we are talking about a 75 mile stretch. I think I may also pack a cell phone in a ziplock bag and attach it to me. In case the handheld VHF doesn't reach anyone. Better to be over protected then not protected at all.

So where will your boat be Jen? I am counting on you for some great pics.

Wow! I never took all that into consideration with the cameras. I guess I'll just have to make a few passes at you then before heading North... East side or West?
