Incredibly Affordable Kayak Storage in Yonkers.

Wow! I can't resist passing this one along! Just posted this afternoon on the NYCKayaker distributed email list*.

Hi: Summer is often the time when a kayaker purchases a boat

So--Just a reminder that there is immediate kayak storage at the new JFK Marina Boathouse in Yonkers!

Lack of affordable storage has long been a bottleneck in the growth of kayaking/human powered boating on the Hudson. Helping to alleviate this problem, the Yonkers Paddling & Rowing Club** now operates a satellite boathouse!

  • Low annual cost of $200.00.
  • Indoor Racks with 24 Hour Access
  • FREE parking
  • Fresh Water
  • Lockers
  • AWESOME view of Hudson River and Palisades (editorial comment - TOTALLY!)
  • Marina Ramp for Launch into a Protected Cove (for beginners) or the Flowing Hudson River (for experienced paddlers)
  • Drive your Car Right to Roll-Up Door and Easily Load Your Kayak
  • Open Also to Canoes and Solo Rowing Shells

(editorial comment#2 - PLUS, chances are very good that you'll end up paddling with the good folks of the YPRC, who rocketh mightily!)

Here's a link to a flyer: _
