2012 Boating Season Off to a Great Start!

For most, April 15th marks the deadline for filing their taxes but for boaters on the Hudson River it’s also opening day at their marina or yacht club. For many marina’s and yacht clubs on the Hudson the boating season is from April 15th to October 15th with some opening earlier and closing later for fishermen, weather or other reasons.
Most boaters target having their boat launched by April 15 while others are glad to get in before the first big boating weekend, memorial day weekend. This years “opening day” was gorgeous! With temperatures reaching to the mid 70’s in some areas, it felt more like summer outside than spring today. Striper fishing has been amazing and hopefully these are all signs for a great summer to come! Don’t have a boat yet? Looking to upgrade? Then don’t miss your chance to SAVE BIG at the 2012 HVMTA Haverstraw Boat Show at the Haverstraw Marina, April 27th, 28th & 29th! A wide selection of boats, vendors and activities!
