Many sailors cruising through the Great Lakes or through the NY Canal have found us to be an excellent spot to have the mast taken down or put up for their journey. Our mast stepping work consistently draws rave reviews. See our Active Captain reviews. We are close to the canal entrance in Oswego and have the equipment to handle large masts that many marinas won’t touch.

Spend a night or two with us. Our friendly staff and customers will help you prepare for your journey. We can get you to the store for provisions, help with your rigging and even troubleshoot those nagging equipment issues. Our staff has considerable cruising experience and know what it takes to be prepared.  They are happy to share their advice and insights with you in an easy-going, relaxed manner.

When you are ready to continue your journey, we can help you secure your mast to the deck or, if you prefer, arrange to have the mast shipped to or from the Hudson River. We recommend Hop-o-Nose Marina for mast stepping work there.


We are fortunate to have the support of so many boaters and their families. Here are some of the comments we have received over the past few years from our transient customers. A full list of the comments we have received appears on our Customer Comments page.

“I have just been reading some of the comments made by boaters who have been at your marina. They are absolutely right. When we pulled in, to avoid a storm, you and your lady and another fellow ran down to the dock to help us tie up quickly. Then you told us about several places to eat in town, and offered to take us along with you on your boat, or if we preferred you were willing (offered twice) to let us use your car. You were friendly, courteous and helpful with everything. This goes well beyond what I have experienced at other marinas. I would be happy to stay at Fair Point again, and will certainly recommend it to all sailers/boaters.”

Boater from Buffalo

“Tim – We have stayed at many marinas throughout the Great Lakes as we make our journey down to the Bahamas. Yours is without question the best one yet. I give it a 10+. The marina setting is beautiful, the facilities are impeccably maintained… [one of three boaters who came to the marina in August 2012 to have their masts unstepped and to have other work done in preparation for cruising down south]

Mast Stepping Cruiser

“Your five star rating on Active Captain is well-deserved. We are impressed with the marina and the professionalism of your staff.” [from sailors heading into the Erie Canal.]

Cruiser through the NY Canal

“Tim, we’ve been boating for many years and been to many marinas all over the east coast. Fair Point is the best. Period. Your team is fantastic, the location is beautiful and your customers are so nice and kind.”

Sailor from Toronto

“Fair Point Marina had excellent reviews on line and we found out that this place is one of the best marinas on all the Great Lakes.” (from a cruiser who traveled through the Great Lakes on their way down south)

Sailor Cruising South

“You’ve always been known for keeping the place clean but you’ve exceeded your high standards this year. The bathrooms have never been better.”

Power Boater

“You {Fair Point Marina] are the talk of the Lake. As we have cruised around the Lake, many boaters suggested we stop here. Said the place was beautiful, the staff outstanding and the people friendly and warm. They were right. We love Fair Point.”
