Re: Don't even know where to start

Here is a good boat that can get you around the islands.

To clarify the marina situation, Saipan has the Smiling Cove marina with all new floating docks and transient dock area with water, power and sewage pump station.

Tinian has new floating docks with no water or power at the 'marina' area. The breakwater has been eroded to nothing so this area is completely exposed to westerly winds, swells and storms... not too good.

Rota has a nice dock/marina area in their small harbor, next to the small commercial port. Looks like it would be fairly well protected from storms. Typhoons could be another story.

Guam has a few different marinas with the marina in Agat the most sail friendly. Power and water at the dock with a small surcharge for live aboard. The floating docks are in dire need of repair/replacement

I should also mention that Guam has a Yacht Club that's at the inner Apra Harbor. They have moorings available at a nominal cost per month and I think are free for the first two weeks for visiting sailors. Search for Marianas Yacht Club to get more info.

Happy Sailing

Matt from Saipan
