First time bringing the kid to the boat. Traveling Traveling to the boat is complicated since we don’t have a car. I also don’t want to bring a stroller. There’s nowhere to leave it on land, and it’s too big for the boat. So, traveling looks like: Walk 2 blocks from the apartment to the subway station. Ride the subway one stop to Penn Station. Catch the LIRR from Penn Station to Port Washington (~45 minutes).

We took the LIRR from Penn Station to Port Washington and then walked down to the Town Dock. Town Dock We had limited time, so we spent the first half of the day fixing things up and answering a number of open questions: I added clorox to the water tank. I set the MMSI number in the VHF. I looked at connecting the Garmin GPS to the VHF and decided this will be a winter project.
