Re: North Cove Moorings are available (Old Saybrook, CT)

Are there residence requirements for these moorings? Is there a convenient dinghy dock? Do you know the cost of the moorings?

The ones in North Cove or Tashmoo?

In Tashmoo all the moorings are private but a couple owned by the small boat yard on the east side of the harbor are rented by the yard.

There is a nice dinghy dock but usually very croweded. You have to push your bow in, tie off with a long painter and don't tilt the engine up.

I have a house about a mile from Tashmoo and I'm there at least every week from late spring to early fall. It may be a bit crowded but I have always found room farther back in the harbor on the west side, south of the dinghy dock. Anchored in Tashmoo off and on all last summer. Nothing compared to Block Island and much better holding.

Had a friend come through last Oct with a 44' sailboat and he had no problem finding a spot.

Looking forward to trying North Cove out
We stop Saybrooke a couple of time is traveling the Connecticut side up or back out of the Sound.

Itís a perfect halfway stop back from Newport or Block to Northport or Port Washington areas.

Thanks for the info SanderO

No residence requirement- North Cove is a federal anchorage (your tax dollars at work!)

There is a dinghy dock on the west side of the cove at the foot of Sheffield Street on the map. The dinghy dock should get an upgrade when they build a new town dock this year.

It is a 10 min stroll from the dinghy dock to Main Street where there are many restaurants, Saybrook Hardware store, Waltís Market for reprovisioning, and the Katherine Hepburn Theatre if you are in need of a little culture.

I believe the cost for the mooring permit is currently $425.34 for the 5/1 to 11/1 season.

Iíll let you know when I get back in, Hugo. Iíve seen folks anchor just inside the entrance in the past but Iím guessing that the town will try to sell a mooring permit anywhere that they can squeeze in a swing circle.

Re: North Cove Moorings are available (Old Saybrook, CT)

Thanks, Bill that will be great.
You, and so many other great contributors here at SN make this such a trusted, valued, amazing resource.
Over the years I have detailed much local info up and down the northeast coast in several notebooks, much info
from here on SN. When friends ask about cruising destinations, and often times i come up with great little known
local tidbits...I'm asked "how do you know this stuff" ...I just respond "I have friends" Thanks to all my Sailnet friends.

Going sailing now, out of Manhasset bay.

Tashmoo. URGENT update

They had some kind of problem with the dredging, not clear exactly what, but a partial fix was attempted that left the channel worse than before. There is a section with only 3 1/2' at MLW at the inner end of the entrance channel.

Hopefully this will be remedied soon. I imagine when the summer crowd starts arriving and finds they can't reach their moorings it will hit the fan and something will happen fast.

Speaking of dredging, they are dredging the entrance channel to Lake Tashmoo on Martha's Vineyard to a planned depth of 10' MLW. Should now be accessible for bigger boats even at low tide.
