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.
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) haven’t 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. You’d either be swinging into the shallow areas or into another mooring. Better to just grab a mooring. I’m hoping to be on my mooring by next weekend, but feel free to grab it in the meantime. Marked “Sullivan 300#”, about 2/3rds of the way in on the south side.
They haven’t done anything to the town dock as far as I can tell. It’s 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.
I’m guessing you’re asking how far it is from town dock to the center of town? It’s about a half mile to Main Street. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and even more a short cab ride away. I’ll leave the restaurant reviews to you though!
