Location instructions on radio a bit murky but that is the only minor criticism. I do not know why each venue cannot provide a link to a clear, dock/slip layout plan so a new person can easily navigate to the assigned dock or mooring! Makes life easier for the venue as well. Anyway, this is a quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle of the main Town dock and had nice facilities and friendly boaters. If you want busier downtown it is a very short dinghy ride away.
My first overnight sailing trip 11 years ago was to Scituate -- I knew nothing to very little then and picked this stop randomly off a chart. I have stayed umpteen times since and have enjoyed every stay. Ed runs the launch and the reservations and regularly goes above and beyond to accommodate new and return sailors alike. I later learned that private club transient moorings are like Coke and Pepsi in Scituate -- you are "Boat Club" or "Yacht Club" on the radio and both are next to each other. I happened to choose "Pepsi" by accident and have never looked back. The launch is responsive and people are kind. Facility has a (as in one) nifty little shower room where you can put your stuff on a bench and jump it the shower behind a curtain. so your stuff stays dry and you have plenty of room. His and her bathrooms adjoin down a short hall. The rest of the club is basically a large room with a view attached to a large kitchen. Grills are between the club and the water and views are lovely. Dinghy dock also available and convenient and you can leave your dinghy at the town dock at the innermost harbor when you go explore the town. You cannot go wrong with "Boat Club."
Dock people and launch driver were very courteous but busy. No real information for transient cruisers (shower location, whether you are nor are not welcome for club meals, dinghy dock, etc.). Something in the email confirming the reservations describing these kinds of things would be appreciated and would allow you to leave the staff alone. Also, no one said anything about how to get back to dock in the evening (card lock I later discovered) so I had to hunt down someone in the dining room who called down to the dock house for me. I was then told I could have obtained an electronic card for a $40 deposit but that is not very helpful either unless you are leaving when they are around and you don't mind another trip to the dock just to swap cards for deposit. I think they could come up with a better system there. The bathroom and shower are separate and pretty dated but clean and in good working order. The shower room was a bit claustrophobic - definitely one at a time! Overall, a very beautiful and pleasant stay. If sailing, you HAVE TO come in only at high tide -- some very shallow spots even at full high -- another hour either side and a 5 foot draft would be skidding or worse.
