Great location with 700 ft freighters passing in front of marina. Clayton has made many upgrades to their waterfront. Clayton is a great town. The marina is reasonably priced, clean with movable cleats to match your boat.
The water is low which is no fault of the marina. There is a pumpout that doesn't work but yet the town pumpout is free. Dockwa makes it easy and the price is much better than town docks. I think where to put your garbage is the biggest concern. There used to be a bin but it no longer there. If you need parts, this is the place to go.
My comments are towards Safe Harbor not the staff at this marina. They avertise they monitor channel 9 and 16 and do not. The VHF at the fuel dock does not work and although there were staff in the office, no response on the VHF or on the phone when we arrived. Please supply this location with proper equipment. There may also be a training issue at the fuel dock. The attendant set us up to put gas in our diesel boat, the issue is the fuel supply lines are both GREEN! Once I told him I needed diesel he responded that it was a good thing I mentioned it. Is this Safe...harbor?
Its the only place to hide unless you are doing 60 mile days and have a big weather window. My wife and I had the Prime Rib and it was not very good. Tough and extremely fatty. I will blame it on the surrounding world conditions as we are often told how good it is.
We understand that this place is under rebuilding. If you have low expectations you will not be disappointed there is power there is water. it advertises a pool which was extremely dirty it advertises free Wi-Fi which is only available in their club house which we could not gain access to there are Washington's which we could not gain access to emailed to us that gave us any codes for The doors. We asked the contact for the Wi-Fi password and the Wi-Fi itself he told us it was only available in the clubhouse which we could not find.
Great spot. You would need a ride to downtown but it's worth it. No ships store but there is one 1/2 mile down the road that has everything. That was amazing.
