Personal Water Craft Trip around Long Island by Jetski PWC

Saturday July 23. Forecast was looking good for our trip around LI. We met at Frank and Dicks in Babylon and were off by 7:30. We had 9 skis – Barry, Jason, Geoff, Yamadude Joe, Sarah, Nizam, George, Howie and Will.  Unfortunately one guy had an engine light come on before we left so he […]

Block Island Jetski Trip by Personal Water Craft PWC

  4am, Saturday morning, June 23…raining. Wasn’t sure if anybody else was still going to show up at Orient Point for a planned trip to Block but my experience with the weather is that unless it is absolutely miserable (everyone’s definition is different) pay it no mind. I was surprised to see all 6 skis […]

Upper Hudson River

August 22 I haven’t done the upper Hudson River in many years so today I decided to trailer to Cold Spring and begin my trip there to the Federal Locks in Troy rather then do the LI Sound and Lower Hudson again and run out of time. It’s about a 2 hour car ride from […]

Connecticut River – “It’s Part of the Adventure…”

Saturday, August 20 I do a lot of trips solo so when a trip is planned with other people I keep in mind that I have to be flexible and just take the day as it comes. The trips wind up being a lot of fun and interesting, as this trip was to become. Awhile […]

Hudson River Revisited – The Anniversary Week Finale

Sunday, July 24 All week my wife and I were talking about the Hudson trip as she had never done it on a PWC. As we cruised around all week I was prepping her that it might not be as calm as she liked, but she was excited and enthusiastic to do it and I […]

Boating to Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island, Sag Harbor

This is mainly a reference to times from port to port. I was running my 37 Searay Sundancer at an average speed of 23mph. This can help when planning a trip to one of these ports as you can figure what you run and then do the math. I know that on my PWC I […]

What to do with 2.5 hours? PWC quick trip

Never enough time after work for a far ride so with the weather looking real nice decided to take a quick trip to Point Lookout from the Connetquot River. Left the river and headed into Nicoll Bay and decided to shoot across the Great South Bay toward Captree Island and ride the shallow water along […]

Westhampton Beach – Sag Harbor – Shelter Island

Another drab looking Saturday morning, but the forecast wasn’t bad so I decided to do a leisurely trip from Westhampton Beach to Sag Harbor. This isn’t the trip to make if you want to do a lot of miles as there are numerous 5 mile an hour zones (strictly enforced!) but it is a real […]
