Default Any Long Island south shore guys out there?

I need to ask someone who knows a little about the south shore boating seen.
Which marinas are close to some nice restuaurants and bars?
Which ones have dock space or high and dry storage?
Which ones are not to far from Queens?

If anyone can help me out, it would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to find somewhere nice because I have been on the north shore for two years now it tends to get a little boring.

Johnny, I live in Bayside, near Uncle Jacks...How 'bout you?

I keep my boat out in Hampton Bays, so I'm not much help for the south shore...but If I had to guess, I would say Grovers in Freeport. There are a couple of members who keep ther bosts there(or near there) and Fire Island is not far away.

Good luck

Sean,

Al grovers is actually the only marina I know of out there but someone told me there was a waiting list to get in. We'll see.

As for where I live, I live in Bay Terrace in Waters Edge Towers. I also frequent Uncle Jacks from time to time(not a bad steak).

Thanks for the info on grovers, I'll have to give them a shot.

Ocean Outboard in Merrick has everything you are looking for, and Tony Caligure, the owner, is a treasure to deal with (please tell him that I said to kiss little Anthony for me!)

For some strange reason, I only have the number for NJ location 732-701-9600.

there isn;t too much on the north shore. There is CoCos in huntington ( 45 minutes in a no wake zone sucks though) there is steamboat in glencove (hempstead harbour) and the crappy clam bar in bayville. oh and la mattas in port washington.

Jen florida is noce AND WARM!!!!! hopefullyj ther eisn;t anymore snow up there. I'll call you when i get back

Get in touch with OSO member Tripps. He is my tour guide for that area. He knows all the hot spots.

There are a few places over by Ocean Outboard in Merrick, Blue water Yacht club is one I think. There are two high & drys on woodcleft in Freeport. Freeport should only be a 15 to 20 minute ride (add another 10 to get to Ocean outboard in Merrick) You're best bet is to take a ride into Freeport, and check out the places on Woodcleft, (follow the nautical mile signs) They've really cleaned up the area a lot. There are some decent bars there, and npot too bad of a ride to Paddy McGees. You can be out to Fire Island in 45 minutes to and hour depending on how fast you're riding... There was also Fred Chall marine in Freeport, but I think they went under.

Tripps, thanx for the info I am definatly going to check out some of those places next week so if i decide to go south I'll be locked in somewhere.

If I do go south I will definatly get in touch with you, I will need a tour guide for shore!!!


For my ride it is a 25' larson senza, for now, I'm looking into the 32' sunsations or the 31' sonic's.

Thanx again for the help, I'll speak to you soon!!!
