Crazy, but mid week during the height of the summer won't be any different. You'll need a reservation for a slip and, if you can get one, you may be rafted to another boat at some places. Many go out for a vacation week, drop anchor for the night and pull it at dawn and start cruising the mooring field for departures. It can take days to get one, as the moorings can't be reserved.

When there this past Sept, I asked the Harbor Master about the summer, as I hadn't been back since May. Crazy as always, he says. He said there were 2,500 boats in the pond over July 4th weekend. I estimate there are only a few hundred slips and moorings.

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