    Great anchorage for winds with easterly component. Exposed to north and west. Lots of room.

    Easy dockage for 2 40ft boats. Easy access to downtown. Sign says no overnight dockage but locals say not enforced. Fenderboards recommended. No padding on pylons.

    Excellent docking for 3+ 40ft boats directly north of bridge. Wharf belongs to Jennette Food services. Check in at office at start of bulkhead. They will have you sign insurance waiver and provide you rules of dockage. Require you to frequent one local business, and fill out survey review, for each night of free dockage. No power but water faucet is avail 100yds from dock for containers. One negative is bridge traffic noise. Easy access to town. Gates to wharf locked 1-5am when no employees present.

    Highly recommend this boatyard. Only reason not 5 stars is long walk to showers/laundry and inconvenient after hours access. As a boatyard, I received exceptional service at very reasonable charge. I was not overcharged for any aspect of services provided. I definately received more assistance than I was billed for. Everyone bent over backwards to be accommodating. Very pleasant experience.

    Transited inbound on 1/17/2019. No problems, channel is plenty wide. Mostly 30ft deep, but saw some 18ft spots at mid tide. Follow buoys. They are not as shown on charts. Don't enter inlet in bad visibility, you need to see the buoys.

    Approach and dockside depth is still 4ft. No hurricane repairs have been even started. Should have passed on this marina.
