Referring to Tashmoo or the original post about Old Saybrook?

If Tashmoo, with the new problem in the channel I think you would be lucky to get 5 1/2' at a good, high tide.

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

****!!!! I was hoping maybe to stop by with my 6'4". I'm become more depth tolerant since the Bahamas, but if they 6' wouldn't make it I tend to believe that ****.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

Oh you could make it easily to the inner end of the entrance channel but that's about it.

If you want to go all the way into a harbor there are other options. Vineyard Haven harbor outside the seawall. Good except in Nn - NE winds. Or turn left under the bridge into the Lagoon, probably the most protected anchorage on the island. Do note that the bridge has limited opening hours. Last posted schedule:

8:15-8:45 a.m.
10:15-11:00 a.m.
3:15-4:00 p.m.
5:00-5:45 p.m.
7:30-8:00 p.m

Or, you can rent a mooring in Edgartown.

They won't rent a seasonal mooring to a boat with a draft over 6'. They don't have transient moorings there as far as I know. I believe the fair way and the mooring is dredged to 8'... but there may be no anchoring in the mooring field.

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

We are heading to the Olde Saybrooke area in less than a month. What is the update on these moorings and dredging?

Can you pick up a mooringveith a ribbon or unoccupied?
Can you anchor?
Did they complete the refurbishing of the dock?
How far a walk to to a new is it.

Hi Chef,
Greetings from Ye Olde Saybrooke! Here are my responses, in the same order as your questions:

As of last Saturday evening (5/11), all of the moorings were in and three sailboats were on their moorings. Dredging was completed in 2018 in the mooring field and the channel from the river into the cove.

You can pick up any mooring with a yellow ribbon, but I would guess that most mooring holders (including me) havenít been out to their mooring ball to tie on the ribbon yet. There are a couple of free (72 hours) town moorings set close to town dock (west end of mooring field).

Not much room to anchor in the mooring field. Youíd either be swinging into the shallow areas or into another mooring. Better to just grab a mooring. Iím hoping to be on my mooring by next weekend, but feel free to grab it in the meantime. Marked ďSullivan 300#Ē, about 2/3rds of the way in on the south side.

They havenít done anything to the town dock as far as I can tell. Itís still a fixed main dock and there is a shallow spot near the face of the dock. The dinghy dock behind the main dock floats.

Iím guessing youíre asking how far it is from town dock to the center of town? Itís about a half mile to Main Street. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and even more a short cab ride away. Iíll leave the restaurant reviews to you though!
