Hudson museum adds dockage

ADVERTISEMENT

The Hudson River Maritime Museum, about 90 miles north New York City in Kingston, has increased its dockage for large yachts cruising the Hudson Valley. It can now handle yachts up to 200 feet and has 14-18 feet of draft at mean low water.

It offers 30- and 50-amp service as well as water hookup and free admission to the museum.

The docks are flanked by a courtyard filled with gardens, an 1898 steam tug named Mathilda, a gazebo, steamboat playground area for children, and the Kingston

Home Port and Education Center, which features lectures and events. Restaurants and other amenities are within walking distance.

The museum will host Hudson River Day on June 27 and the Hudson River Valley Chapter of Antique and Classic Boat Society Show August 15-16. The 2015 exhibit is Lighthouses of the Hudson.

Find the marina and museum 1nm west of the Rondout Lighthouse on Rondout Creek.

In related news, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has begun the sixth and final season of dredging PCB-contaminated sediments from the bottom of the Hudson River. The cleanup called for the removal of an estimated 2.65 million cubic yards of sediment from a 40-mile stretch of the upper Hudson River between Fort Edward and Troy.

The dredging is being conducted by General Electric Company (GE) under the terms of a 2006 legal agreement. According to GE, the company has invested more than $1 billion on the cleanup project to date.
