Re: Dock and Dines?

Anchor and dinghy over to the dock, or (if there is room), tie up at the end of the dock.



That is my O'day 35, with a 5' 7" keel, tied up at the end of the specific dock that we are discussing...

Now that's some great recon. Thanks.

Looks like that end spot is all that would work for us. Perhaps dropping the hook just south of the dock or across the channel in that cove would work. Any word on holding? Assume its all mud?

Kind of fun to have a new place to go, right in our back yard.

Just go at high tide .

If I get over there, I'll take soundings with me boat hook.

Great picture! I just added this location to the ActiveCaptain database.

With anchoring there, you might be concerned about the current from the Sakonnet. I know it's pretty strong between the old bridge abuttments just south of there.

Anyone else have any places they like to dock 'n dine?

I'll add one more to this thread:

Looks like Legal Seafood opened docks at its Boston Harborside location this season:

Legal Sea Foods - The Standard for Quality and Freshness in the Restaurant Business.

Note says "And transient docking for boats is available in season at the Liberty Wharf Marina."

Expensive, though:

Information | Docks | Marina | Liberty Wharf

$20/hr, 1hr minimum. That could be an expensive lunch...
