Thanks for all of your input...The Cross Bronx w/rain and 36 feet of trailer should be fun!

Go by water!
Drop your boat in at Manhasset or Glen Cove & you will be at Liberty Landing in 15-20 minutes. If your towing over on Friday anytime from 3pm on, expect to spend about two hours on the Cross Bronx alone.
I believe all the construction on the Cross Bronx is finished but it still gets REALLY backed up on Fridays.

OK ... A new brain teaser.

Trailer Legal 8'6"
Boat Beam 9'4"

Can I pass through a standard EZ PASS Toll Booth without getting wedged in?

Yes you will make it, but it will be tight, you are about a foot wider than i am, and i have about a foot on either side, so you should have a bout 6 or 8 inches on either side, not much but if you know what you're doing, you'll be fine!

Do you know if EZ PASS has an oversize lane at the toll plaza or is that a cash lane only for big rigs. I hate tight spots and try to avoid them.

Thanks
