Default Albany Boat rentals for the run

If anyone knows of any boats that get rented out for a month or so during the run PM me. I need to get off the shore this year.

I don't think there is anyone up here near Albany renting boats at any time of year.

I don't know of any rentals on the river.


Even if there were rentals, i'm guessing they wouldn't be cheap. Might be able to find a deal on a basic 12'/14' alum V on the cheap. Than you'll have it for the whole season and the future seasons.



Another option, when season get here ... Mention here on the board that you're looking to get out with others local. Offer up a few bucks for gas money or to buy lunch. A lot of good guys on the Hudson River site here.


I have been on both ends of the situation, meeting up with others & also taking others. Can't say I have ever had any bad experiences.




Good luck man

I have been looking for a 14 or 16 footer to have for this exact reason. The river makes me nervous in a little boat. I know Joe as I have been out fishing with him in the past on a charter.

Thanks guys, I struggle with fishing time and family/work so I was trying to find a boat last fall through now at a price I could afford and feel safe in.

I plan on taking a few days off this run during the week to fish maybe I can find someone during that tie going out. I would gladly pick up lunch and gas.

I fish the river near downtown Albany out of the Corning launch...give me a shout when you can hit the river.

This year I'll have one boat at Catskill and one in Newburgh. When there's room we're always willing to bring an extra. I'll prabably be on the river every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and weekends for the month of May.

Can't tell you how many times during the week i have gone out all alone. Usually after work. Weekends the boat is already packed.
