      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Stamford, CT, Developer Seeks Marina Permit

Recommended Posts

This is not the old Brewer's Yacht Haven site:

 

 

Davenport Landing is a proposed residential community located on the West Branch of the Stamford Harbor off property located at 28 Southfield Avenue in Stamford. The new development will consist of buildings which will contain apartments as well as a small, 30-boat slip marina. The marina will offer 10 transient slips, 10 slips to the general public, and 10 slips to the residents. There also will be public amenities, including parking, a café and access to the public boardwalk and viewing area.

10 transient slips? I bet that gets lowered

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, here's an update on the old Yacht Haven site:

 

Temporary Boatyard Planned for Stamford, CT

 

 

According to the Stamford Advocate, the developer of Harbor Point has announced plans to provide a temporary boat-service facility that will be spread across several of its properties along the east and west branches of Stamford Harbor.

The announcement was apparently made in response to calls by the city and boating community to re-establish a working boatyard in the South End, where the former Brewer facility was demolished in January.

On Google Earth, it looks like an old gravel pit or contractors yard with a paved parking lot at the water...

I understand that the Zoning Board will meet tonight (3/5) at 7pm at Turn of River Middle school and BLT will present some plan for providing marina service beginning April 15. It's said to include a "hoist". (Which could be a crane, rather than a travellift.)

 

I'm interested that they are apparently not going to have a fuel dock, which would be not only a great convenience but a potential revenue source. It suggests to me that the fuel facilities were removed or damaged.

 

Of course, we all know that the "highest and best use" of Stamford harbor is to provide rich people nice views from their office and condo windows.

No fuel. That's convenient. What a travesty what's been allowed to happen to the waterfront in Stamford. (And elsewhere)

 

 

Time once was that the poor watermen lived on the shoreline and the rich folks lived in the towns and cities. Totally reversed nowadays....:huh:

The food sucks there and the drinks are way overpriced, although at times it is entertaining trying to watch Joey bag 'o doughnuts from Long Island try and dock his cigeratte boat in the slips there.

Screw the visitors, I want that place all to me. Cougar quality at the bar is top notch and the burgers are as good as anywhere else.

 

Much like the Ponus and the sandwich shop next door in the ghetto I like the crap shell more in terms of nostalgia and good memories than actual quality.

Villa Italia

812 East Main Street, Stamford, CT 06902

 

This is one of the original places BI skippers and crews go to unwind. Some folks have been eating their pizza after racing for over 25 years! The pizza is the best in the area. The crews from Crazy Horse, Phoenix and Swan can always be found here.

Brennan’s Restaurant

82 Iroquois Road, Stamford, CT 06902

 

This popular restaurant is a little hard to find but worth the look. It’s off Shippan Avenue. Here you’ll find the folks from: Adrenaline and Lost in Space, .

 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Hope Pizza

230 Hope Street, Stamford, CT 06906

 

The folks on Navis Bona and Windrush like Hope Pizza because it’s on the way home for the New Canaan folks and that the pizza is cut the “Greek way”, into many pieces making it easier to share.

 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Bulls Head Diner

43 High Ridge Road, Stamford, CT 06905

 

The sailors on Soulmate like the Bulls Head Diner. A classic diner on High Ridge Road.

Paradise Grill

78 Southfield Avenue, Stamford, CT 06902

 

The crew from Wingweaver hangs out here or the City Limits Diner

Like I said, I could give a crap about quality. Those other places are nice too but don't hold the same regard in my heart of hearts... at the moment.

Used to go to Brennan's all the time when we were under aged sailing instructors...

 

Crab Shell food sucks, but I have to agree with LH, there's never a shortage of talent on a warm Sunday afternoon.

Brennans is also great, just a little geographically removed from Brewers/The Stamford "Waterfront".

 

So far it's the best place I've been for a soda after the Vineyard Race Party.

There is a Travel Lift on the site. Nothing else so far, except for some fences.

 

Sooner (May) or later (June? July?) some degree of service will be provided by the Gardelas (Rex Marine, Cove Marine in Norwalk).

See the Advocate today? BLT's new boatyard on the West side of Shippan won't handle ANY sailboats and power boats must be less than 30 feet. Are you kidding me? That's a friggin' dinghy yard! These guys will do anything to get Bridgewater in there. I wonder if the Bridgewater guys have seen the flood maps or are aware of what happened there during Sandy.

Another good reason to buy a Mac26x

Let's see them outlaw that!

Your Mac is going to have to go on the highest wrung of the rack. The only dry storage will be runabouts on a rack hauled and launched by a forklift. (I suppose you could always lower the rig, if that is what they call it on a Mac)

I thought about it that way too. On the other hand, they should be able to store their yacht in their cubicle at high tide.

That's still there... as is the East section of Brewers. It was just the West yard with the sheds, travelift and workshops that has been bulldozed.
