I travel the Hudson River Valley almost every day, all day, seven days a week!
This gives me an extraordinary perspective on everything Hudson River Valley as I have lived in the same town, (almost) and still have enough of my mind, (some would question that) to see the differences in life style that we live in today as compared to say the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s.
We visited Manhattan’s High Line—an abandoned elevated freight line in the Chelsea District on the Lower West Side between Hell’s Kitchen and the West Village, that had been transformed into a mile-long elevated linear public park—in early June 2013. At that time, the park ran from Gansevoort Street (near Greenwich Village) to West 30th Street and the two original sections had only been open two years, and were relatively “undiscovered”. We’d heard that it had been extended north a half-mile to 34th Street, and this new section swung pretty much due west towards the Hudson and the West Side Highway: Tuesday was to be sunny and in the low 80’s: a far far cry from overcast weeks and weeks in the 30’s-50’s: “Let’s go!!!”.
What’s in Your Transom?
If you have mushrooms growing on your carpet you may have a problem!
A customer called from Downstate NY and wanted to get back into boating after twenty-five years. He previously owned a 23’ Sea Ray back then. Now he was looking to buy a 25’ and found a 1989 Sea Ray on Craigslist at a good price. It needed work which he proceeded to do.
Alex: I Have Excessive Vibration of the Outboard Engine
Engine vibration can be caused by a variety of factors. The most common cause is a damaged or loose propeller. The first step in troubleshooting this problem is to check if the propeller is attached securely. Examine the blades for any breaks, bends, or cracks. If the propeller seems loose, ighten the components. However, if the propeller is damaged, replace it with a new one, and then run the engine to see if the vibration stops.
Homeowners Insurance Simplified - Getting The Best Coverage at The Best Rate
For most people, your home is your most valuable asset. Whether you own a traditional house, a condo, townhouse, coop or tiny home, there are very specific types of homeowners policies for each. Even if you are renting, there is an insurance policy form for tenants that insures your personal property and also provides liability insurance. When was the last time you really looked at the limits of coverage, deductibles, endorsements and coverage form on your policy to know what you are covered for and also what is excluded? Maybe never or just when you first made the purchase.

I was invited by our friends at Sandy Hook Yacht Sales to join a demo ride aboard a new 2017 Sabre yacht 42 Salon Express along with a couple of prospective buyers. One of them, Chris Widdis, owns a 2006 38 Sabre Express and was thinking of moving up to the 42. What an opportunity to hear from someone who could give us some insight into a decade of progress. We also had John Lembeck aboard, an experienced boater who could give us a fresh view point on the Sabre 42.
