It used to be that many a child would go to their grandparents when they were old enough to walk to get a basic understanding of what life is all about! That included fishing, hunting, trapping, and how to operate a boat. These children were perfectly capable of handling the boat and going fishing by the time they were twelve years old.
Leo Thorsness, Medal of Honor Winner, passes at age 85. No matter how you feel about the Vietnam war, you cannot possibly question the valor, heroism and sacrifice of men who served during that

On the morning of Wednesday, January 18th, at five am, members of the Hudson Sloop Club were notified that the Riverloft building in the North Bay area of Hudson, NY was burning. The building, which was recently donated to their sister organization, Kite’s Nest, housed all of the Sloop Club’s materials and supplies. Fortunately, the club’s larger boats that live on trailers were outside and subsequently spared. The fire destroyed the entire building and everything in it. The building was completely demolished by the end of the day. The Hudson Sloop Club suffered deep, material losses, but luckily no one was harmed, and no lives were lost in the fire.

With recent actions by both the Army Corps of Engineers and the US Coast Guard exploring mandatory life jacket wear, we wanted to examine the range of life jackets currently available and evaluate their performance and comfort. The Foundation last looked into life jackets back in 2003 with our test of inflatable life jackets. Since then inflatables have come a long way, but we have also seen diversification in the life jacket market with new designs targeting different types of boating and water activities.
Access from the water is very accessible from your boat to the deck of the Hudson Water club! By far the most accessible restaurant and huge deck on the lower Hudson River is the Hudson Water Club at Haverstraw Marina.
Installing bow thrusters, or for that matter stern thrusters in a boat, no matter what the size, can be a very tricky business. So says, Carl Senter and Jim Costello of Coeymans Landing Marine Service, Inc. With 24 years at the same address these two versatile mechanics are the best on the Hudson River.
