Two young men waved us on for docking....halfway tied us up and left. Turns out we needed to be in the spot backwards in order to hook up to shore power. My wife and I spun the boat, tied it up and hooked up to shore power ourselves.

Fairhaven Shipyard makes it easy...good communication, help waiting for us on the dock upon arrival, and a clean, welcoming facility. We enjoy walking to Fort Phoenix State Park where there is a nice beach and you can watch the boats come and go from the harbor. We enjoyed a superb meal at nearby Elisabeth's Restaurant.

Easy slips to get into & out of, dock hands couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, smooth water in the harbor even when it was blowing in Buzzards Bay. Doughnuts in the morning were a great touch too.
