Reviews for Fair Point Marina
*The* Place to Step Your Mast, 2016-10-12
Captain: , Miami Beach, FL (130)

Marina can be a challenge in strong winds but Skylar knows what he is doing and is an expert stepping a mast. It was our first time doing so and he made it look easy. Entire staff will go out of their way for you. Couldn't recommend a marina higher.

Great place to have your mast unstepped, 2016-08-24
Captain: , Bronte Harbor Oakville Ontario (123)

Skylar and Ryan and Mercy were great taking the mast down and setting everything up. Skylar even took us to the grocery store.

Great mast pulling service, 2015-10-10
Captain: , Toronto (30)

These guys know what they are doing and do an excellent job. This is the place to have your mast pulled if you are entering the canal at Oswego.
Schyler is a genius at mast stepping/unstepping. Fred, his helper, offered to deliver parts we ordered but had no time to wait for, to Pheonix on the Oswego canal. He met us there the next day in to rain! We love you Fred!

Great place to step mast for shipping, 2015-08-28
Captain: , Kingston (99)

Cheryl Tim and Skyler are very courtious and professional. Stepped my 63' keel stepped mast no problem.

Pleasant, well-maintained marina, 2015-07-09
Captain: , Pultneyville, NY (852)

The marina is located to starboard just as you exit the jetties at the northwest corner of the bay. This is the only marina/marine services at the north end of the bay. The owners and managers have done a great job of maintaining the facilities, grounds and services. The marina also has RVs/campers on the grounds and in a large RV park adjacent to the marina. Transient docking is available in an empty slip or on the large fuel dock. The staff was friendly and we receive a small gift bag containing information about the marina and local attractions. The marina is able to handle larger power and sailboats that the marinas in the south end of the bay are not equiped to handle.

Fair Point Marina, 2012-12-22
Captain: , Stuart,Fl (49)

New owners as of 2007. Great place to be. Easy docking for transits.
New break walls as of May 2010, updated bathrooms and clubhouse, nice place to visit for a night or weekend or even stay for a year. New docks and fingers 2011.

Fantastic service, fantastic people, fantastic facilities, fantastic time, 2012-11-01
Captain: , Evanston (50)

We stopped by Fair Point Marina in August to unstep our mast. We ended up staying there longer than we had originally planned, but it was well worth the prolonged visit. We were having major problems with our engine at the time, which Jon and Syklar were both able to help us with and fix. Jon even sat down with us for an hour one night, explaining major parts of the engine to us.

In regards to unstepping the mast, the whole process was straightforward and smooth. There was an incident with our foredeck light getting taken off in the procedure, however, Jon and Arline noticed it and the light was replaced by the time we got our mast on the other side of the Erie Canal (we had it shipped to Catskill, NY).

The facilities in general at Fair Point were modern and well maintained. Using the full kitchen was a luxury after spending much time in a tiny galley. The shower facilities were also clean and pleasant. Alrline even drove us into Oswego one day to get provisions and to show us the first locks of the Oswego Canal so we knew what we were getting ourselves into. There is a great community at the marina since many people have either campers, live-on boats, or both there. During the weekend that we were there, there was a wide array of people around to talk to and spend time with. There was an auction one night as well, which all the transient boaters were invited to, and which was super fun. Everybody was extremely welcoming and eager to talk to us and give advice.

Overall our stay at Fari Point Marina was excellent and we ended up paying less than we thought we would. I would personally recommend anyone who is considering going through the NY canal system starting in Oswego to stop there. Even if you're not going through the canals, it is still worth the stop whether you need boat help or just want to meet interesting people.

Service above and beyond expectations, 2012-10-12
Captain: , Muskegon, MI (980)

I found this marina is a Google search trying to find information about un-stepping our mast. Jon Libby answered all of my questions promptly and gave us the information that we needed to make decisions our journey.
The Marina is wonderful, clean facilities, a car to run errands in, and the full time residents helped us with information and local knowledge, including us in their activities. The club house has a full service kitchen which was a delight to use after cooking in a small galley.
What I remember most was the information that they shared not only with us but everyone who asked. Jon's knowledge about boats is second to none and he helped more than one customer get parts and repairs.
The price that was quoted was what we paid or less. Our mast was handled with care and arrived at our pick up point before we did and ready for us to put back on.
The reputation of this Marina and Jon and Arleen travel with us and we found several others fellow travelers who shared found memories of their visit when we went to the Annapolis Boat show.
You cannot go wrong make a stop here and if you%u2019re traveling the canal they are one of the best choices to have your mast taken care of.

Cozy but a little shallow., 2012-10-11
Captain: , Rochester, NY (493)

Kind of tricky manuvering in the harbor with our 6'draft. Very nice cozy facilities; very clean with a "campground" flavor.

We unstepped our mast here for a trip down the Oswego Canal and the Erie Canal. When it came to pay, unstepping and shiipping was over their estimate by a significant amount, but the marina did a super professional job.

A bit of a negative was when they dropped the cap to our holding tank in the water during pump-out. They lent us a loose-fittiing one, suggesting that we turn it in at Ess and Kay on Lake Oneida (q.v.) and buy a new one ($70.00 +!!)

Life blunders on.

I would certainly give another star but for the unstepping underestimate and the loss of the holding tank cap.

Fair Point Marina, 2012-09-10
Captain: , Mystic, CT (20)

A wonderful place. Our first summer on Lake Ontario. Facilities are OK. Not great, although they will be doing a fair amount of updating and improving over the winter. Very nice setting. Fairly small, which is good by me. The staff is knowledgable and usually very easy to access. The other boaters are friendly and helpful. It is a very comfortable place to be. My only complaint is the depth of the water. We draw 6'6" and can no longer can out to Lake Ontario (as of Sept 8 20120) for fear of running aground. This is not the fault of the marina but when first gathering information from the staff we were assured it would not be a problem. I really love my weekends there.

Great Marina, 2011-03-30
Captain: , Baldwinsville (10)

When I launched Cassandra for the first time this was the place I chose. Beautiful inlet to sail in when the lake is rough, good prices on slips and hauling. Their marina crew were so very helpful when I ran into mechanicals snafus, and if it were not for the other boaters there I would not be where I am. They treat everyone as well as you could hope to be treated.

Best So Far, 2010-10-31
Captain: , Wilson, NY (432)

This is the first place we stayed, we're now near NYC and this is the least expensive place so far. It's also the cleanest, has the nicest facilities and the most friendly and helpful staff. Great job unstepping our 1000 lb 65 foot mast in 15 - 20 knot winds.

Good service, good hosts, 2010-09-04
Captain: , point breeze, new york (10)

When towed in to Fair Point Marina with a mechanical problem, we were treated as guests more than customers by Jon, Arline and Tom who went "beyond the call", including transportation and sharing a bottle of wine, to make sure we were able to resume our cruise. The marina is a very well maintained, presentable facility as well. We regarded our experiance there the high point of that week long sail. Sue and George Campbell
