We had a good two night stay at the Onset town mooring field. It is a well-protected harbor and very nice town. The moorings are in good condition and after Labor Day there were plenty available. The town provides launch service with the mooring, but it is not reliable. If you plan to use it, we suggest that you have a backup. In our case, we had to go ashore on Sunday and the launch operator assured us that they would run the launch from 11 AM to 4 PM that day unless the wind was too high. We asked what too high winds meant and he said probably over 30 knots. Unfortunately, on Sunday they decided to cancel the launch due to what they claimed were high winds; we were recording gusts to around 20 knots at the top of our mast. As a result of the change, we launched our dinghy and motored in to the dock getting a bit wet, but in no danger. The launch drivers are also marine patrol. We are sure they can handle 20 knot winds. Our reading was that they decided to cancel the launch for convenience possibly because we were the only boat in their mooring field.
