Question Massachusetts moorings

I searched Mass.Marinas on sailnet but didn't find what I needed. While I love the people at the marina I'm now using, the working ferry causes a lot of rocking. I'd like to stay in the general area [Hingham] so if anyone knows of something better please let me know.

Joesaila,

There are a couple marinas at the southeast end of Hingham harbour, near the Rt. 3A rotary. These should be well beyond any Ferry wakes. I believe one of these marinas used to and may still be called "Kehoe's". There are moorings and slips.

Alternatively, you could move further south to Cohasset or Scituate harbours. The town mooring wait-lists there run into many years, but there are some commercial marinas where slips can sometimes be had.

JoeSaila,

If you haven't already, you may want to sign up for an account with Active Captain (www.activecaptain.com). Once you have an account, it will provide a chart view of... well, the entire US if you'd like, but certainly... the area that you are looking for. You can zoom in and out on the area of interest, and view it as either a chart, or a sattelite photo, or both. You can then select an icon of the marina facility that you are nterested in, and it will give you a description, contact names, and phone number for each.

This is the second time in two days that I've pointed someone here... And no, I do not have any affiliation with; or interest in, active captain, other than as an occasional user.

Hope this helps!

Ed

(Trying to be helpful [and boost those Rep points] here....)

I just looked in Active capain and there are 14 POIs near Hingham. The marinas are: Bay Pointe Marina, Tern Harbor Marina, Hewitt's Cove Marina, Landfall Marine, and the Hingham Yacht Club.

Thanks Ed, that should help. I like the info it gives you and its cheaper than renting an aircraft!
