Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
Don't know about Tylerton but Smith Island Marina in Ewell is nice & simple, and nearly right next to the "main" area- the (only) restaurant where the ferry people get their Smith Island cake. Also next to the (only) fuel dock, right by the (only) cell tower. I presume you know about the flies? Not sure what they're like this late in the season.
Channel was re-dreged a year or two ago, nominally to 7ft. Skinniest I saw was 5.5, in early May.
Thanks for the comments!
Hmmm... kinda sorta remembered about the flies. Ewell not reponding, so Tylerton ferry dock - no facilities i know - seemed like a nice crowd-free option. We generally prefer a working boat dock to a tourist marina, but really just wanted to get over to Smith. Last time i was there was over 40 years ago...
