Re: Anchorage near C & D canal
What about Engineer's Cove in Chesapeake City? It's only about an hour past Bohemia. I haven't been in there in a couple years, so not sure the status of shoaling vs. dredging for a 7.5 foot draft. Over Labor Day weekend I did notice that they have new markers encouraging traffic to stay on the east side of the entrance.
From a couple years ago, I'd say it's too shallow for 7.5 foot draft, but if someone knows of more recent dredging it might be doable, so I'm just putting it out there for others to comment on.
I guess one other option that is definitely doable is a slip at Shaefer's Canal House, though it will cost $$$ and have a LOT of current.
Maybe he could try Engineer's Cove for free anchorage and if it's too shallow to get in or too crowded, then head over to Shaeffer's for a slip as a backup plan.
