This is a great spot with accommodating staff. There are Both fixed and floating tie ups. The location is very convenient to local bars and restaurants. Highly recommend Grain rooftop beer garden if that’s your thing. While it’s a better location than Tidewater imo there is no fuel at waterside.
Fuel at every slip! Why they don’t promote this on their web site is a mystery. Also they could label the docks from the water. But minor gripes. Basically a first class marina all around. Great walkable restaurants.
Good layover spot - easy access from LI Sound, fuel dock, great restaurant (Fresh Salt), accommodating and friendly staff.
Payne’s is great if you know what to expect - it’s very old school block island with No frills whatsoever and they like it that way. You often get boxed in or rafted off other boats but it all mostly works. It would be nice if they monitored VHF but the preferred, well only, means of communication is shouting with them from the (usually inaccessible) fuel dock. But good people, good times.
