Charleston Marina is in a great place in Boston Harbor. It is convenient to Boston and Cambridge. It has no fuel dock, but there are other fuel docks close by. It is a bit awkward arranging a pump out, but it can be done. The marina has a parking lot, but it is usually 'full', meaning it is reserving spaces for someone else. Use Uber or Lyft rather than renting a car.

The staff is helpful. But they put us on a face dock that is exposed to wake from many passing ships. Very roly. After a day they put us on their fuel dock, which was better but had no services. The marina is small, exposed to a lot of passing traffic and has very little in the way of services. There are about four restaurants on the street next to the marina, none of them very attractive.

The marina is on the Cape Cod canal, near the Cape Cod Bay end, and just next door to the Sandwich power plant. It is well protected so we had no motion of the boat overnight. There is a good spot to walk the dog, and it has two restaurants. The one we went to was really jumpin' but they found a spot for us. The place also sells fuel. We bought 400 gallons of Diesel at a price that is not out of line with other places. (Still expensive). The folks there were friendly and helpful.

Provincetown is a great place to visit. Lots of very good restaurants, things to see and lots of very strange individuals walking around. The marina is right in the center of things, is easy to get into and out of, and the staff is very helpful.

The approach from Vineyard Sound, through Canapisit channel, is rather tricky and requires close attention. The channel into the pond on which the marina is located is not as challenging as the guide books say, but still requires care. The dockmaster and others around the dock are attentive and helpful. There is a guy there selling lobsters and a small cafe on the dock. But aside from these and a very small grocery store up the hill a ways, there ain't much to Cuttyhunk or Gosnold, the town. It is a good place to be restful while on the way from somewhere east or west to someplace else west or east (or north)

Harbormaster was responsive and helpful in directing us to the mooring. But the numbered mooring wasn't there! We were directed to take the next one and that worked. The only real problem was that we could not identify a usable dinghy dock. Better was the launch service, which was quick and inexpensive.

We asked for a tee end, they gave us a tee end. Directions for finding the dock were excellent. Restaurant was quite good. We didn't need any additional services, so I cannot comment on their mechanics, etc. But for an overnight stop between New York and Newport, this one was excellent.

Marina is in a good spot, and in and out are straightforward, although you have to be careful of ferry boat traffic in New York. The folks are helpful and friendly (and considering it is New York, that is remarkable). The one negative was that the restaurant in the marina building was closed and the other restaurant on site had a private party. Poor planning on someone's part.
