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. No surprise, I was told, up front, that it did not run.  My wife keeps bugging me so now I would like to see why it does not start!  It cranks, but will not fire up, I tried ether, but that did not work.  It is a diesel with approx. 5000 Hrs. 8kw

Truth be told, I’m basically a land-lubber: hikin’ and bikin’ and climbing up and down mountains, from the Hudson Highlands to the Alps to the Himalaya. Boots on the ground notwithstanding, I’ve always felt very natural in boats: able to read, and “feel”, the boat, the water, the current, and the waves.

About the Cover

Coming of Age on the Hudson Volume I: In Which I Make Several Attempts to Float from Albany to Manhattan Between 2006 and 2010, and in the Process, Become a Citizen and a Man

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. The rate was thirty dollars round trip. Later trips from the same location cost forty six dollars round trip. Children under 5 ride free and fewer than 12 at reduced rates.

YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS PROPERTY TO BELIEVE IT !

26YouHavetoSeeIttoBelieveIt

An opportunity like no other! A beautifully, well-built restaurant situated on the banks of the Hudson River in Athens, NY. This stunning turn key operation is the chance of a lifetime. The relationship between Hudson and Athens is key to the success of anyone who purchases this waterfront dream. While it may be the “Local’s”, who are the main customers of this restaurant, it is the tourists and regular out of town visitors, who will continue to grow the market. Promoting this tourism effort is greatly supported by the “very active” Greene County Tourism Agency.
