The Hudson well because it's THE Hudson.

Only a few miles long but Onancock Creek on the eastern shore of VA is stunning and terminates at a Norman Rockwell of a town Onancock

The New River (second oldest river in the world) near Mouth of Wilson in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Close call though.

The Sassafrass is a beauty with a happy ending at the harbor at Georgetown. Chester River is totally unspoiled, the Wye is lovely as well.

St Johns River Cruising

Hello all Stations, Barco Sin Vela here to entice boaters to come to the river paradise known as the St Johns river, America's Nile of North America.

Originally from the SF Bay Area, we live in NE Florida because of the river and the availability of safe cruising without having to deal with the harshness of ocean weather. A family could cruise the St Johns for years and never be bored with the same scenery.

By the way, the entire river lends itself to easy anchorages and with little harassment from the Gendarmes concerned with limiting time at anchor. All you need is to have proper equipment, i.e.; Holding Tank, lights and radio and current registration and you are pretty much free to go where you like.

There are a few cruising guides available, the guide published by Thomas Kranz is a bit dated, but lists the many quality anchorages that the author personally tested out along with convenient charts.

Here are a few photos I took from two trips to Hontoon State Park, on the St Johns River... A gem of a destination, if you draw four feet or less.

Neuse River North Carolina might be a little boring, but it works for me. Actually, anywhere in Eastern NC.

Hey Craig,
I'm from your area and I have seen those sturgeon, which lurk in the murky depths. They scare me more than a few gators. Since I used to swim for a living, I don't voluntarily swim anymore. (Gators are as good a reason as any to not swim!)

P.S. Isleton has the best crawfish in the world! Too bad we can't get any of your local crawfish sent to the South.

The Trent Severn waterway, mostly made up of natural rivers is 386 km (241 miles) long and extremely beautiful. A Canadian National Historic site and worth anyone's time to explore. The St. Lawrence Seaway, third picture is also a thing of beauty.

Most of my younger year on the mississippi just north of Capn Craig and now on the Hudson. Both great rivers to be able to spend time on.
