Hi

I have just heard that the route between Moon and long Islands is likely closed to boat traffic. I am not sure where to check.
if it is closed would you be open to an outer island trip launching from the Houghs neck Marina?

Spectacle Island may have delayed openning

I learned that Spectacle may not open as usual because it gets its power and water from Long Island and that disappeared when the bridge was demolished. They may run generators but water is the main issue.
