Marinas of Montauk

Located on the south fork of Long Island in the eastern most portion of the state, Montauk just might be the ultimate boating town.  While just to the east of the Hamptons, Montauk struggles to maintain the small village feel that is not all that different from quaint seaside villages located up and down the east coast.  With just over 3,000 full time residents and over 1,000 boat slips Montauk might just have more boat slips per capita than any other seaside community.

Lake Montauk is a perfectly protected harbor.  All the marinas are located within this formally fresh water lake that was connected to Block Island Sound when the inlet was created back in the late 1920’s  This body of water couldn’t be more suited for boaters who are looking for a seasonal home for their boat or those looking for transient docking when visiting the community.

I recently purchased a new to me 20’ runabout.  Like most of you I am concerned about boating safely and once I got the boat back home I started making a list of the items I was going to need to meet the safety requirements as defined by the NYS boating laws.  As I was digging around the compartments in the cuddy, I found the signal flag, the air horn and of course the package of flares which had expired in 2006!  Not a surprising revelation since it’s always a challenge in my other boat of keeping a supply of non-expired flares.

An upcoming day on the water with guests prompted an inventory check on our primary boat.  The inspection turned up a host of flares, everything from the pistol type with expired shells to 3 bags of expired flares that pre-date my purchase of the boat. I do have one bag of flares that’s good for another boating season, but that also brings up the question how many is too many and what to do with all the expired ones.  I believe that’s why many of us continue to store all these outdated flares.
