Seasoned Senior Sailors

Seasoned Senior Sailors

October 1, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Sailing in the crisp air of autumn is a treat, with panoramic views of magnificently colored foliage doubled by the reflection of the leaves on the water. And for senior boaters who aren’t committed to working all week, the season is even more delightful. But as seasons change and leaves begin to turn new colors, […]

Northport Fulfills Ice Cream Dreams

Northport Fulfills Ice Cream Dreams

September 1, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

. Northport is a fun day trip for local boaters. The village is accessible and scenic, and it gives off an old-time vibe. It’s also a cool place to satisfy a sweet tooth hankering for ice cream! I noticed in my visits that Northport has an abundance of frozen refreshments just a short walk from […]

Northport’s Cow Harbor Weekend

September 1, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

During the weekend of September 19 through 20, Northport gives a nod to its past in a most enjoyable way. Back when cows may have grazed alongside the harbor, the area was known as “The Great Cow Harbor,” and so the weekend’s celebrations take on the name. On Saturday, September 19 the annual Cow Harbor […]

My Summertime of Dock and Dine

July 1, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Going out to dinner is a completely different experience during boating season. There’s something special about gathering up friends and cruising to enjoy a good meal. Being in a small group and traveling together, enjoying sea breezes and great views, is a lot more fun than traveling separately by car and meeting up. My wife […]

Enter Northport Bay from Huntington Bay — you’ll see four looming power stacks, Northport’s most visible landmark.  The village dock offers transient space on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge until 5:00 pm.  From 5:00 – 10:00 pm there is a flat fee of $20.00, and boaters wishing to remain overnight pay $2.00/foot for […]

April 1, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

We’ve all heard (and maybe used) the word “dreamboat.” Then there’s “dream destination,” the phrase on the lips of many boaters we encountered during the winter. They were happy to share the places they long to visit by boat once the weather warms. Will you nod your head in agreement with one or more of […]

If you’re floating on a mooring in Northport Harbor or tied up to the town dock, you start wondering where to feed your hungry kids and thirsty crew. The answer is Feed and Grain, a moderately-priced, family-friendly restaurant within easy walking distance of the harbor. In nice weather, there is outdoor dining on the terrace […]

In each issue, we share reviews of two restaurants.  We also provide this annual round-up of restaurants we’ve featured in the past year where vegan and vegetarian boaters won’t be left hungry while everyone else enjoys a meal. Here are six eateries, ranging from casual sit-down (or takeout) to upscale dining, where vegans and vegetarians […]

Northport is one of our favorite overnight boating destinations.  The town dock at the foot of Main Street is always a place to be seen!  When we pull into Northport hungry, we usually go for the tasty and great-value takeout of Maroni Cuisine, which is located a very quick walk from the dock. While known […]

The alluring aroma of garlic may not make it all the way from Campari to your boat, but once you’ve tied up at the village dock and started the short walk up Main Street, it’s bound to find you. A pizza counter greets you first, but this place is more than a bustling takeout business. […]

There are very few times onboard a boat as relaxing as being at anchor on a beautiful summer day. One such day held that promise as we left Northport at 11:00 am in our 37’ Silverton for a 20 minute ride to the anchorage area of Lloyd Harbor (along the southernmost part of the harbor just west of the lighthouse).

When Tod Thonger’s water rescue team responded to a local sailboat fire last year, relief circulated throughout the warm, summer air. Moored out in Northport Harbor, a 42’ sailboat had suddenly gone up in flames, and proved to be far too menacing for the U.S. Coast Guard to extinguish on its own.

Since the inception of the Black Rock Yacht Club in the early 1980s, a monthly tradition has continued.  A small statue, a black piece of coal with a rudder, is given to someone whose tale of boating is truly “rock-worthy.” The rock-worthiness of the story is voted on by other club members, but this is […]

The name of her 33’ Sea Ray is “Anita’s Prescription” and it’s a fitting metaphor for its owner. Anita Glashow, a pharmacist who puts in long hours at work, says the boat is her place of well-being. A self-proclaimed “fitness nut,” Glashow says her “mission is to be in shape and healthy while enjoying being on the water.” And she’s got a unique way of accomplishing both: she exercises in, near and on the water as often as she can.

Harborside eateries are considered havens for seafood lovers. However, more dockside dining establishments appear to be welcoming to those who enjoy seeing fish stay in the sea! About one million people in the U.S. are vegans (we eat no animal products at all) and over seven million are vegetarian (consuming no animals). Then there’s another […]

One sunny day, I met up with two friends for an afternoon of waterskiing. After skiing for more than two hours, we were bored and decided to find a place to eat. The sun was still shining and the waters were calm, so we all agreed it would be way more fun to search for food with the boat rather than head back to the mooring and take the car to a deli.
