We are moving from a Detroit suburb to NY (we haven't decided on Westchester or Nassau yet) and are wondering about the boating community. We have a 34' searay and have our boat on Lake St. Clair. We have a great boating community in Michigan with the Great Lakes. People get together out on the lake, raft off one another and socialize. I was wondering if there was anything like this on the Sound. We thought we would try boating for one season and if we didn't like it we would sell. Any boaters out there that could give us some insights. I can't find anything online.

I wish I owned a boat, but the few times I've been out on the sound we've always ended up hanging out on one of those small islands with random people sharing food and stuff and hanging out. There is a somewhat cool community I'd say from my experiences. The only thing I'd worry about is once you get up to Connecticut, it seems people are a bit more shy. However around Rye everyone seemed real friendly/

I'm not a boater, but I do know that there is a definite "community" of boaters around some of the marinas on the Hudson in Croton. We have friends who keep their boat there and it seems to be a big part of their social scene.

I know the boating culture you speak of, having had friends from Grosse Pointe. While it does not exist to the same level, there are places on the Sound where you will find a community of boaters in Westchester and on Long Island. And, many of them are very much boaters and welcoming of other boaters.

My grandparents used to dock in Connecticut. It's gorgeous over there.

Thanks for the responses. I'm glad to hear there is some kind of boating community there. We love hanging out on our boat, especially with other boaters. As DMA1250 mentioned, I will check out the marinas on the Hudson in Croton.
