Default What is the boating like around Bridgeport Conneticut?

Besides the Atlantic, is there any inland lakes that would be good for a Top Gun?

I would say no. I think Long Island Sound and the southern portion of the Connecticut River are the only bodies of water for a Gun.

There's a good bunch of us who run out of Old Saybrook at the mouth of the CT river.

I go to college in Bridgeport right now, and other than the ferry there's not much going on in the harbor. Old Saybrook/Mystic area is a lot more popular for performance boats, ease of launching, access to Long Island Sound, etc. (If you ever want a crew for the Gun PM me and I'll skip my history class )

Leaving out of the CT river gives you some of the best boating destinations in the country. Block Island, Newport, Greenport, Montauk, Sag Harbor, Mystic, etc....
