I was in Emery Cove for a couple of years while living on Knob Hill. I thought it would be nice to have the boat closer. Use Muni, and just simplify life. I disliked the S.B.H. so much I went back to Emeryc Cove within 3 months.
The heads were filthy, and wet all the time. The folks running the marina was like dealing with the Gestapo. I once sailed the early part of the day, and went to pick up my wife at the guest dock when she got off work. They had a fit that I sat there for 10 minutes, and demanded I go to my slip. The dock was completely empty.
In the summer there's a strong wind on the beam, and it was tough getting in & out alone. If you take the windward slip you might nudge your neighbor. If you take the leeward he might nudge you....yikes.
This was in the 90's, and the policies might have changed in reference to management, but the wind is still on the beam. I liked Emery, because we were out of the city, but could look across, and still see it. It was extremely quiet, and peaceful there......i2f
