Brewerton to Clayton, NY
The lighthouse at Oswego is pictured here.
The town of Clayton from the air.
We left Oswego without a marina reservation for the night. It was Monday so I did not think it would be a problem. I tried several marinas and left messages but no return calls. The town operates a municipal marina on a first come first served basis so I thought we would be OK, wrong. With the weather forecast many boaters stayed put. I found 50 feet along a dock but I need 54 for the boat only, plus a few feet to maneuver so I had to pass. Finally Marina 225 owner answers his cell phone and says sure I have a spot. 4 foot draft no problem, he says. In we pull, and find out we have 4 feet 2 inches of water, luckily silt and not rock. Island Hopper is on the right above. Clayton Marina link.
Here is the media room with Ian checking it out at the marina. Just storage.
