Perfect trip back from Riverhead, and through Moriches!

Shelly: “An awesome mini-vacation!”We are happy to report that the east-west passage through Moriches is clear! This enables us to avoid the 50+ mile outside run between Fire Island Inlet and Shinnecock Inlet.

We simply followed the navigation bouys, past the USCG Station, with 5-6 feet of water at the shallowest points. We did it up on plane! Marc led the way.

It was the perfect weather day for this 62 mile inside trip.

Precious Cargo captain, Marc Elbaum, led the way though Quogue Canal, the Hamptons, and Moriches.

Shinnecock Canal – Locks were operating today when we passed… timing things for high tide at Moriches.

Shellerina’s engine rests at Seagull Restaurant, at Bergen Point, West Babylon NY (walking distance from our home.)
