ON THE WATER S urrounded by oceans and bays the Hamp- tons offer a variety of ways to enjoy local waters few other areas possess. Best of all, you don’t actually have to own a boat to go! We have a number of providers who can outfit you for a seaside voyage or take you along for a ride of your vacation life. Here are a few that are more than up to the task.   SAILS IN THE SUNSET When you’ve got a big stable fishing platform there are other things you can do with it to en- tertain the visiting folks. Like having a heck of a sunset cruise, huh?
