It crossed my mind yesterday that with an overnight anchor we could stop at Pt. Judith instead of heading back to Block. Thanks for the tip on the inner harbor. It sounds much nicer than the harbor of refuge.
We've anchored overnight in 20 ft at the south end of the Harbor of Refuge at Pt Judith and had no problems. It is a convenient stop, depending on conditions, between Fishers Island Sound and Cuttyhunk. Just need to avoid the shallow area to the SW.

We have anchored in the Salt Pond as well, but it was a significant detour for just an overnight stop. You may get wakes from the fishing crowd in either location, BTW, particularly inside from the smaller boats leaving early in the morning.

Agree with others that Third Beach (on the north side of Sachuest Pt) is a great place in prevailing conditions.
