Overnight we will adjust your lines at low tide, taking in all of your slack in, which will allow your boat to ride parellel to the pier. Our facility layout We have approximately 400+ feet from the bridge east to the end of the front bulkhead. There is approximately 450 feet on both sides of the main pier and 250 feet of float dock on the inside transit pier, and finally 250 feet on both sides of the fixed dock portion of the transit pier. Fuel Dock (Red Pilings 50-75 feet from the bridge going west) Our fuel dock is for fueling ONLY and will remain free from vessels mooring there without the dockmaster's permission. The fuel dock represents the area located at the bridge abutment, ending at 100 feet past the red pilings. The floating dock on the inside attached to the fuel dock is to remain clear from boats docking there for extended periods of time.

A 2-3 knot current with an easy approach. Dock hands are very helpful. We overnighted on the face dock which are fixed-3.5 foot tide. Good basic marina with a really good restaurant. If you are picky the noise from vehicles on the bridge might bother you. I had a cold beer and thought of the sounds as a funky reggae beat. Great location midpoint on the C&D canal.

Second time staying here on way through. Last time was in December when off season dock master Tom and his staff are fantastic helping with fuel and docking in stiff current. The on site restaurant and staff were great Amanda brought food right to our boat. This time everything was open and band playing we had a great meal and night.

First time staying at Schaefers by boat. Did an overnight as heading North and it was perfect. Tom, the harbormaster, was terrific. Could just walk from the boat up to the restaurant. Excellent food and service. Ended up staying again when our main engine water pump broke. Tom had no problem letting us stay till we got the work done.
