Long Island Sound Visit

With your draft, you''re pushing your luck at Sand Hole. Try instead:
1. Anchoring at Lloyd Harbor (hang a right at the lighthouse when entering Huntington Harbor)
2. Anchoring behind Great Captain''s Island on CT shoreline. Beautiful scenery, free view of local fireworks show on Friday nights
3. Free town moorings in Port Washington, always available.

Re Block Island: I''ve only entered Great Salt Pond at night - knock on wood, no problems as long as you follow charts carefully. Sunday morning moorings start emptying out - keep a lookout and you should be able to grab one, unless it''s a holiday weekend. I''ve anchored there three times in blows, holding ground is pretty good near center of pond.
