Re: Move B*tch, Get outta the Way

as it will take you as long to arrive here as it will for my boat repairing to be completed, i dont have to move (neener neener)--you make sure when ye anchor on me that you give me a few of my boat lengths so you donot have to smell my coffee in morning ha ha ha ha ha

Did I mention it's small?
You should have said "tiny". The bigger Ships Store location is not in Newport. West Marine and the independent chandlery (new & used stuff) at the rotary are closer, but a very long walk from the harbor.

However, if the small store is convenient, you might check it out. Also, if you are in the neighborhood, you can get a free water fill-up at the Newport Shuttle float across the fairway from Bowens Wharf--assuming the float is not occupied.

All the best on the cruise!
And how much is dockage there $$$
Cheaper to anchor off Ida Lewis and get a cab to run you to the chandlery. There is a pretty good one up near the Clairborne Pell bridge. There is also a dink dock north of the main harbor that makes walking to that shop not so bad.

Well, sorta. Rule 17(a)(ii) would have permitted you to change your course or speed if you felt it necessary. But I certainly don't blame you for electing not to do so, in the circumstances described.

I don't think dockage is the right comparison to being anchored. Connanicuts overnight moorings are in the $40 range, for an average size boat. Their launch is free, if you would rather not load the dingy with groceries. I'm not sure whether they have a partial day rate for a mooring or dockage.

The fixed pier that runs through the middle of Connanicut (not the fuel dock on the north side) is actually a town pier. Might even be worth calling the town to see if you can tie there for a couple of hours of grocery shopping. I have this vague recollection that you can and there might even be a floating dock extension on it. Besides all that, Jamestown is definitely worth a visit. One of my fav towns on the Bay, although, I often walk over from Dutch Harbor. That could be along walk with groceries.

Re: Move B*tch, Get outta the Way

Well, you did say dockage, not mooring. Kinda different. But 40 bucks for a mooring is still $.
We have no problems loading the dink with multiple cases of beer and water and half dozen bags of groceries.
Now if visiting Jamestown is worth 40, then have at it.

Re: Move B*tch, Get outta the Way

Well Newport anchoring was FREE and that is better than any over priced mooring!

Currently in New London Ct so I could go to Defender and get some stuff we needed like a new shower sump pump.

No, xort, I never mentioned dockage in the post you quoted, you did. You also suggested paying for a cab in Newport to go to the store. Have you done that? Newport cabs are very expensive.

Obviously a moot point for the OP now, but for others interested, Jamestown is a great stop, with about everything a cruiser needs. If the mooring is too expensive and my suggestion for the town pier doesn't pan out, one can anchor in Dutch Harbor and walk over the hill. I would say the grocery store is approx 0.5 mile from Dutch.

The tag of this chain clearly indicates the tone that will follow. What a waste.
