BOAT TALK WITH with Alex - September 2017

Question: I have a 1988 Silverton Yacht with a Generator.  The Generator has not worked since I bought the boat 3 years ago.

There is no more interesting character than “Dallas” whom I have featured on the cover for September.

Back in 2005, Dallas began his quest to build a raft, out of the most impossible junk you have ever seen, and float it down the Hudson River to New York City. As I looked into all this nonsense and saw the following that he had developed, I began to realize that this was more than just adventure.

Seastreak to The Shore

30SeaStreaktotheShore

Manhattan was melting on a mid July morning and I was escaping to the cool water and breezes of Sandy Hook National Park.

It was an easy, ten-minute walk from Grand Central Terminal to the Seastreak Pier at 34th St on the East River. There I caught the ferry at 8:45 AM, which got me the early bird special.
