Your Where & When, Why and How Hudson River Information Source.

Offers information, articles, postings, tide information and more on
Hudson River boating.

Boat owners an boat renters can now enjoy a day or week on the water!

 

Boaters see them around every harbor: people dreamily looking out over the boats, longing to be part of the lifestyle, out on the water. Now, owners can play a part in introducing newcomers to their passion, or aid the shorthanded visitor—and generate extra income while doing so. Cruzin, the nation’s leading boater-to-boater marketplace, introduces its Captains Program.


This new option allows owners to rent their boats, yet remain on board to assist and enhance the renter’s experience, and add another layer of safety to the excursion. The program makes it stress-free for people to list their vessels with Cruzin in a way that best fits their circumstances and
preferences. It’s also an exciting new opportunity for people who are looking to rent a boat.

LAST RUN ON THE RIVER Featured

Last February 27th I decided to “hang up my anchor”. I had been working for the Sandy Hook and Hudson River Pilots for over 42 years. That day I piloted the tanker Afrodite down through the ice out of the Port of Albany and brought her safely to Yonkers - It was my last run! People often ask me what I’ll miss most about working on the “River”. My immediate response is always the same, namely the people I meet and work with! Spinning a ship around in the Port of Albany and helping it wend it’s way along is not an easy task and depends on the help of many others to make it happen safely. It all starts with the goodbye hug from my wife as I leave the house. Then I meet the security guard at the port who greets me and checks me through to the ship. Next I meet the agent (whose job it is to please everyone) who then gives me the OK that everything is ready. As I walk along the berth I greet the line handlers who are happy to know that their job is at hand as they shift back and forth with the cold.  MORE

SUPERBOWL SANDWICH FROM HEAVEN Featured

Football season is finally here. You know what that means to me, don’t you?
Sunday football parties of course! Sunday is my Husband’s day to sit and
scream at the TV. I am a standard girl when it comes to football; I really have
no interest in it. I do however; have a serious interest in Superbowl FOOD.
This recipe is so much fun. It combines two of my three loves; food and shop
-
ping. Think about the size of your crowd before you go to the market. Actually,
what you really need is a good Italian deli. I go to A&S Fine Foods in Jefferson
Valley. They are the nicest guys! Mario and Nicky always take very good care
of us. They have the BEST fresh mozzarella you have ever had. They make
it every morning around 9:00. If you haven’t tasted fresh Mozzarella before
then get yourself over there and try some. Trust me, you’ll love it! Not that you
can’t put this together from your local deli department, even supermarket deli
department, but using only Italian specialties makes a definite difference. More

Since I started cooking it this way; rib

food repertoire. My darling Hub always
wants an end cut.  More

I feel thankful every time I sit down to 
write this column. Who knew, back in 2002, that 
I would have become part of this funny, kooky, 
quirky, loving, boating family? So many of you love 
food the way that I do and everyone was so recep
tive to me, I felt instantly befriended. Nice people, 
and I get to talk about food all day long. How could 
I not feel lucky?  "   Ivey Levy....

Dinosaurs of the Hudson River Featured

At Certain times of the year there are strange, huge fish that visit the Hudson River in large numbers.

 
Many are here throughout the year, however the increase in numbers is 
caused by the spawning sturgeon that lay their eggs on the rocky bottom of certain parts of the Hudson River.
 
Riverman knew when the sturgeon had arrived and sought this prize of prizes for the eggs or caviar that they provided. MORE....
