Really? The pic on their website shows many many boats anchored just off the fort? Could be old pic though, I tried calling them today but there is no one in the office until later this spring.

I have to say the current line up of bands did not make me want to hassle with crowded harbors distant moorings and ferry's. I think I will wait to see if they add any true headliners before making any kind of commitment.
