Manhattan 2016

Postby Jim McP » Fri Feb 12, 2016 12:23 pm

We are in the initial stage of planning another Manhattan Run. No date yet , hope to keep it simple with just a meetup at the Statue and circumnavigate the Island.
Stay tuned.

I'm in if the date is good.

I have done the Statue multiple times when I had my 34 and 42, spent several nights each time during the fireworks, 3 times for Operation Sail.
Would be a hoot to do the trip without all the luxuries a bigger boat offers.

So - which island, Liberty Ellis, Governor or Manhattan? I could add Staten Island getting there (from Shark River).
Thanks,
Duane

Bump.
So, who's going?
We're starting to give this some serious thought. Hell, who cares about a 650 mile drive if it's for a four hour boat ride AROUND MANHATTAN, (again)....

Hey Phil,
I do believe that that's us, right there in the middle of the frame....

The weather looks to be perfect. Would love to do this ride, but have a graduation and party to attend. The Hudson, East river, Hells Gate and the Harlem river can get snotty in a hurry. Also busy and boaters tend to be rather nutty. Keep your heads up and eyes open.

Be safe,
Norm

I'm looking forward to being there for my second Whaler Run around Manhattan. I trust someone has the Spuyten Duyvil railroad bridge opening taken care of? I don't recall whether it opens on demand or whether it is open all weekend.
