Excellent information Tokobe and TB ... much appreciated. I am printing it out and will have it right there in my chartbook ready for our arrival.

I guess my thought is we'd want to fuel and water up at a marina and possibly have a night or two at a dock after having been at sea for 4-5 days. I am going to at least take a look at the others.

Our ground tackle is 150" chain and 160" 3/4 rode for the primary (bruce)....so the chain would serve as the "kellet" to improve the "catenary" (I could impress my friends with these terms) or could put out a second anchor. Actually, if the mooring is available I probably would be able to drink more wine.

We'll have to use our holding tank in the aft since our Lectra San has a small holding tank (17 gall). But the idea that they will come to you is great.
