With the fourth of July upon us there are lots of events centered on the waterfronts of New York State.  A couple of our favorites at the Tall Ships at Greenport and the Steamboat rally in Waterford.

As part of the Tall Ships Challenge Atlantic Coast 2015 the ships will be in Greenport as part of a four day festival from July 4th- 7th.  As always there are lots of activities to do in Greenport.  On the waterfront Mitchell Park will be bustling with special events and activities to entertain visitors all weekend long.  Restaurants and merchants will offer an assortment of great food and beverages.  Live music will be playing on stages and street performers will be displaying their many talents throughout the village streets and harbor front.  Take part in games at the nearby carnival, ride the antique carousel and enjoy the fireworks

From time to time we come to you with a special boat.  Today it's a 1957 23' Chris Craft Continental.  There were only 170 of these ever built between 1956-58 and even less of the triple seat models.  While this boat appears to be almost original the interior was re-done sometime in the 80's and the original motor was changed to a 2003 Mercruiser 5.7 fuel injected model.  The previous owner used this boat regularly in the waters off of Cape May NJ. until one day after returning from a day out on the water and returning to the dock, the boat sunk overnight and was discovered by the marina staff the next morning.  The boat was pulled and the engine treated and that was the last time the boat was in the water.  It has been stored in a garage in upstate NY for the last 4 years and now becomes available for the next owner.  This is a boat for someone who is willing to put in the necessary work to bring this boat back to life.  Every piece of hardware and trim comes with the boat.  She sits on a purpose built trailer that appears to be road worthy.   The bottom line price of this classic piece of american history is $6,000  To see more pictures of this boat take a look at her in the Classified Section  DSC 0299

Where do you stay when you travel?   Maybe you opt for the traditional types of accommodations like a hotel or motel, maybe a bed & breakfast.  What about staying on a boat.  Companies like Airbnb, VRBO, Homeaway, and sleep afloat are including more accommodations such as staying on a boat.

There have always been the opportunities for chartering a boat, but those have been more closely associated with Bareboat charters where you are using the boat to travel.  Now there is a growing supply of boat owners who are putting their boats onto web sites such as the ones above for as little as 1 night stays in locations that you may not have been thinking about before.

After The Falls celebration in Seneca Falls

As an ongoing series of articles celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Current Erie Canal System, we want to start early in promoting the After the Falls celebration being held in Seneca Falls from Aug. 7th – August 20th 2015.

As part of the construction of locks C/S 2 & 3 the flats in Seneca Falls were flooded in order to create the locks that eliminated the falls.  VanCleef Lake was created, and in the month of August Seneca Falls will celebrate that period of time when more than 100 commercial and industrial buildings and 60 homes were either moved or destroyed in order to complete the Canal System.
