I never thought of that. A lot of advantages too.
Excellent visibility, I can just stand in front of the pedestal and turn around. Very easy to see the dinghy's. It's only about a mile out of three interconnecting channels past about 500 boats and three party hangouts. We will finally be well known at all three marinas.

Seriously though that is a good tip we have almost no experience backing up. We must give it a try.
