My only regret is not staying longer. Our stay was only a brief overnighter, and I wanted to enjoy the museum as well.

Good dockage and great tour of the museum. Electrical needs some updating.

The marina was wonderful and the museum is a must see. It was very windy (20+ knots) and the staff were amazingly helpful with dock lines etc. I enjoy the short walk into town as well. It is a little rocky at night but the floating dock is better than a mooring because of how it is sheltered immediately next to a fixed pier, at least in a typical southwesterly.

Mooring area exposed to long fetch with resulting continuous wave action. Very uncomfortable resulting in early departure. Dock hand was a volunteer vwho was very nice

Just about everything was terrific. Just two small notes: (1) The docking process (previously reserved space) was a bit confusing - hard to understand just where to put the boat, and what sequence would be used between us and "Christine", also in the process of docking. Also, although the dock crew was satisfied that the assigned spot would accommodate our draft, we wound up with the rudder aground at low tide (departure time 1100), apparently because the bottom shoals up at the inner end of our berth. (2) A staff member locked up the dockside heads while a crew member was inside - led to a rather frightening experience. Additional note: I really didn't want to create a Marinas.com account, but was unable to submit this review without doing so.

Enjoyed our stay. The primary inconvenience was that the bathroom and shower facilities were closed on the afternoon of 7/4. They reopened on 7/5. Also, we didn't know how to access the wifi...no info on the webpage.
