The Gloucester Harbormaster was very quick in responding to the initial dockwa request. And they were very profession in resolving an issue of mistaken identity (2 boats with the same name with the wrong boat assigned to our reserved mooring).
Great location on the inner harbor floats. One night was a little rolly due to the direction of the swell outside the harbor, but the other 2 nights were calm. Be prepared to hear the 8 AM cannon fire from the yacht club close by if you are a late sleeper. Camden is a special town. Wonderful restaurants, shops and people.
Easy in, easy out. Handy Boat was preferred than stopping in Portland on our way up the coast. Everyone was very nice and the Dockside Grill served excellent food.
The Back Channel is a very calm location to stop. Jason the manager could not have been nicer. He sent us a mooring field map in advance so we knew exactly where to go. Grabbing a mooring there is a little challenging with the current and the pots but absolutely doable. Dinghy ride to Chauncy Creek Lobster Pound is a plus.
Beautiful harbor, a short walk (or bike ride) to restaurants and the market. Staff was helpful and friendly. Launch drivers could try and throw less of a wake.
Easy in to Edgartown. One quick call to the Harbormaster who told us which number yellow mooring we would be staying on. The harbor is set up well with the town moorings in yellow and clearly numbered 1 to 100 (or so). Also, loved the water barge where you can fill the tanks 24/7.
