Re: east coast provisioning stops

It seems like all of this would be good information to add to the Active Captain information/reviews already posted about these locations. One of the categories is Shopping so I'm sure details would be welcome. When I research a new town we sail to, that's where I go first. With SailNet's limited search capabilities, it's easier to use AC, especially when people stop posting to this thread and it gets buried.

As I said up front, that is backwards from what I'm trying to do here. You can surf up and down the coast looking at various harbors and reading comments and maybe you'll get lucky stumbling into a good provisioning stop. Or have a list of all the good stops in one place. Feel free to not participate here.

Maritime Museum has discounted dockage for memebers
Good restaurants and a couple of pubs in town
Perfect timing for the info. We'll be sailing there next week on a short shakedown after taking delivery of our new boat. Thanks!

Re: east coast provisioning stops

Also 10 miles east of St. Michaels in Easton are at least two major propane suppliers, a marine canvas shop, hardware stores, a West Marine, Lowes, Target, Walmart, etc. There is a MUST shuttle bus that can take you between St. Michaels and Easton for $3 E/W ($1.50 for seniors).

Re: east coast provisioning stops

Herrington harbor North - south of Annapolis has a West Marine on-site, but no groceries.
Edgewater has Fawcetts, West and groceries about a mile away. Chesapeake Harbour in Edgewater may have a courtesy van and has laundry on-site but no fuel.

Okay, I'll play

In the Boston/North Shore/Cape area. In no particular order:

Scituate: Town Dock for short tie-ups or mooring for cheap overnight. With mooring comes launch service and free showers/bathroom at GC/Harbormaster Office. Grocery store, restaurants, liquor store, all within 5-10 min walk. This may favorite port in MA

Provincetown: Lot of places right off of city pier (5 mi or less). I think Flyers is mooring service/launch.

Plymouth (haven't been to): Lot's of places right from dock. Takes a long time to get into Plymouth Harbor from open water due to shallows.

Boston: (Inner Harbor): Everything is walkable, even from Constitution Marina.

Salem: Everything is walkable.

Marblehead: Busy on w/e, but if you get a spot on the short-term tie-up dock near the Habrormaster/The Landing Restaurant- Grocery store is less than 5 min away.

Rockport: Very popular/Small port. Not many open spots for visitors, unless you anchor on the other side of the jetty. If inside the harbor, launch service and everything is walkable.

Newburyport: Long city dock, great location to town, everything is walkable. Bad thing is Newburyport is 3 miles up the Merrimac River, which can be a problem if bad weather at the mouth.

If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.

Cape May. A 1/2 mile walk to a well stocked ACME and CVS, 1/4 mile to a top line cheap fresh fish market. Or take the trolley for 1.50

The point of this thread is to share those locations that have good access. Thank you
Apologies,
