A planned short stay at CMS on our boat turned into a longer stay as it is when we overheated our motor on the way out into the sound on the way to Cuttyhunk. Of course we sailed back to CMS and grabbed a mooring. We received very timely assistance from Dan in diagnosing the root problem and then installing and tested replacement parts the next day. Great team at CMS to work with, both at the water front and at the shop up on Narragansett Ave.
Thanks very much ,
Dave Strippe and Janice Edler

We terminated our planned three day stay in one night as we were less than pleased with the whole setup. Distance to marina was quite far and the mooring field was isolated. No restrooms available. Advertised shuttle to town was actually the public bus going by. We asked about the dinghy dock and were told we'd have to call and check if there was room for our dinghy. I guess for the most we've ever paid for mooring fees we expect more. Its easy to say we won't be back.
Thank you for your feedback. Three Mile Harbor is a fairly large water body, approximately 2.5 miles in length. The deepwater mooring field is located towards the center of the harbor and it does take a few minutes to dinghy in to one of our four marina properties that are located along the harbors eastern and southern shoreline. Many people like the Three Mile Harbor Mooring field because it is well protected, its deep (11ft mean low water), and offers an abundance of clean water and natural beauty. We have dinghy docks at Harbor Marina and Three Mile Harbor Marina for the use of our transient mooring customers. Each of these facilities has a well stocked ships store. Also, we do encourage first time guests to check in with us to ensure they tie up at the correct location on busy weekends. Harbor Marina has an excellent Waterfront restaurant as well.

We do not represent a shuttle to town. As you pointed out there is a public bus and numerous private cabs, car services and Uber. Our staff is available from 8:30am until 5:00pm 7 days a week in season to help with customer requests via VHF channel 9 and our main office numbers 631.324.5666 or 631.324.1320.
Lastly, Three Mile Harbor Marina is building a brand new club house with new bathrooms for the 2018 season.
