Question Berkley Island off Piankatank River?

I read the Active Captain reviews, sounds like a wonderful anchorage...any pictures?

It says its privately owned but also mentions many trails and a beach. Can you go ashore with out any issue?

Seems similar to Dobbins Island which I hear is now fenced off?

Cheers,
Shawn

Never been there, but you piqued my curiosity, so I went and looked it up. It does look like a neat little place. The only thing I'd worry about is the Route 3 bridge. It's a fixed bridge, and according to the chart, it's got only 43' vertical clearance.

LOL, yea that would present a slight problem...I missed that on AC, too busy zooming in on the island

I theoretically could make it. According to my boat's specs, the masthead tops out at 39'5" off the water. Maybe if I went at low tide, just to be sure I don't lose my Windex.

No thanks.

That's a lovely boat, though. Is that a Hinckley? Whatever it was, it's gorgeous.

He's definitely got a big pair.

You can go ashore at Little Bay, behind Windmill point if you're down that way. Just a beach though, no trails and whatnot.

Yes, I've actually been there - right at the mouth of Antipoison Creek. Very nice little anchorage. Very pretty.

Not as sheltered as the little coves up the Piankatank, though.
