Re: New in Narragansett Bay

Minnewaska brings forth a very good sugestion in a rental for the delivery.
You can check canal control web site or phone to check if a bridge schedule.
The time I transited the canal, when the bridge was down, canal control boats were
on hand to keep traffic a safe distance from the bridge. Do not know if this is
standard operating procedure but suspect it is as they seem to be pretty much on top
of things. Maybe more familiar sailnetters will comment.
Beware of towing dink, as is a very possible way to foul prop. Well aware of the space
contraints of a 30 fter., if you can't keep inflated aboard use floats or floating line
and bring in very close to transom if manuvering boat in tight quarters.
