The northwest part of Oyster Bay Harbor, known as West Harbor, is one of the most protected sections of Oyster Bay.

In 1978, I owned a 1971 24’ Revelcraft with a 318 Chrysler salt-water-cooled inboard engine.   This was a very comfortable boat, capable of taking me and my fiancée on extended-day adventures away from the mooring in Oyster Bay.

Traveling from Bellmore Creek to Reynolds Channel was certainly stressful; we were in unfamiliar, small, shallow waters. The tension was high for a captain making my first big trip while simultaneously trying hard to protect my brand new investment. We went very slowly, our vision obscured by the vapors.

Reading the chart right for depth info Has been some time since my father passed away. It was he who introduced me to boating at the age of 4, and even at that early age I fell in love with boating. And while I’d like to think that I probably would have gravitated to boating […]
