I've spent the winter at this place, and I like it. The yard manager is a good guy, and the yard caters more to working boats than the "yachtie-types." It's a no frills place: the amenities include a head, and the manager will usually offer you a Bud Light. The yard is under new ownership, and the area where the slips are was just dredged. The down side of the working boats is that they attract gulls.

The yard to the north is one of a well known chain of marinas in the northeast. They cater to yachts. I didn't spend the winter here, because it was about $500 more expensive, and their contract rules required that I pull the mast (although, I drive by it every day I go to my boat, and there are a lot of boats like mine with their masts still up).
They offer;
  • Heads and showers
  • Ice
  • Courtesy transportation
  • Swimming pool
  • Picnic area
  • Barbeque grills
  • Ship's store (expensive)
