I want to take this opportunity to thank all those, both members and spouses, who participated in the preparation and execution of the most successful River Day to date. In spite of the Elliott Way construction and competing events such as the Town of Cortlandt “Family Fun Day”, we realized the best attended event since its inception nine years ago.
The 2nd Annual Schuylerville Fall Festival: “Turning Leaves at the Turning Point”, will be held on Sunday, October 8 from 12:00-5:00 pm. Visitors are invited to this beautiful, historic, thriving downtown to experience the fun and excitement of this close-knit community. There will be a scavenger hunt for participants to follow to encourage them to visit their local businesses and engage with the business owners. Along the way you can enjoy street musicians and delicious local food vendors. Restaurants and store fronts will be open, and artists will be demonstrating their skills. Boaters are encouraged to dock at the Schuyler Yacht Basin for the weekend and enjoy
the shoreside events as well!
It was a beautiful, bright clear morning when I pulled into the huge parking lot of Cornetta’s Seafood Restaurant in Piermont, NY, (just below the Tappan Zee Bridge on the west shore) to find the “boys” unloading their “catch of the day” into their pickup truck.
“River Day” was created by the Croton Yacht Club to provide children and adults with a “hands on” grassroots experience as to what the Hudson River has to offer. The river, full of a huge assortment of fish, blue claw crabs and other species is dramatically presented under the tent erected on the grounds of the yacht club as well as by the Hudson River Fishermen’s Association volunteers.
Wrapping it up!
Shrink wrap- Shop around; there are many good mobile services available. Experience, quality of workmanship and materials is important. I have seen shrink wrap burned and melted on seats and repaired scorched gelcoat numerous times. Best to have white wrap! White will reflect sun light,
keeping your boat cooler.
When Insurance Is Not Required But Necessary
Insurance is required by lenders for home, property, car, boat and other tangible items in the
event they are involved in an incident where there is a total loss or damage to protect the lender’s interest. Leasing companies, landlords, Departments of Motor Vehicles, Marinas, equipment and car rental agencies require liability insurance in the event you cause bodily injury and/or property damage and they are drawn into a law suit.
