Nice trick... dinghy and call mothership.

Thanks for the location suggestion, that's what I was looking for. The idea of boats dragging next to me or parked over my anchor is exactly why I don't go in Jul and Aug. I'm not totally excited about doing this, but there are some 30 yr old family memories of the Oar that all want to relive.

The Harbor Master is a very nice and helpful guy. He will also escort you to the private mooring to be sure you get on the right one, if available at 3pm. The fee is identical to the public moorings. Unfortunately, the town moorings are limited for LOA's over 40ish feet and so are the private ones, so we can't go with any expectation we will avoid the hook in August.

I strongly prefer to go after Labor Day. Excellent.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
