Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

I think a better approach to anchored vessels would be on the order of how Annapolis approaches anchoring. you get pumped out every couple days and they pay attention to he anchored boats while they are at it.
In Daytona, if you go into the municipal marina and inquire about dinghy dock , there isn't one.
Not sure if they offer paid use of the facilities if your anchored. they didn't in the past.if they offered these services it wouldn't harm the bottom line as they would be charging .and if they offered pumpout from a boat while at anchor I would think it would aleviate that issue. The anchorage across from the north basin in Daytona south of the orange ave bidge is a poor spot IMO I prefer south of Seabreeze as it is a no wake zone and little fetch and close to a public ramp you can walk to the beach.
