I transited from Westport Harbor to Menemsha via the Canapitsit Channel with a USN Captain (ret) on board. We made an absolutely magical crossing on a lake-like Buzzards Bay and MV Sound, arriving in Menemsha to a nearly-empty marina. We were promptly greeted by the Dockmaster and made fast to the fixed pier. No complaints, it was a weekend for the record book!

The marina was virtually empty. Cap’n George Isabel, the Harbormaster, assisted us with our lines and gave us a tie up to the fixed pier - which was very helpful since my wife & I can’t manage a landing into the pilings.

CBY is a very reasonable marina for cruisers. It’s a large facility, so the dock hands can be overwhelmed and unresponsive on VHF10. They’re very helpful once on scene. The pool is a nice touch and the showers and heads are fine. The facility is weathered but pricing is reasonable. Sailors need to contact the Shaw Cove bridge on VHF13 to request an opening but be prepared to wait since Amtrak rolls over the bridge with surprising regularity!

Marina Response:
We thank you for your stay with us at Crocker's Boatyard. We apologize about the delay from the dock hands upon your arrival, but our dock hands monitor VHF Ch. 9. Enjoy the rest of your summer cruise and stop back and see us again!
