Re: Lake Tashmoo Entrance

Is there much room for anchoring in Lake Tahmoo?

Unless it crowds up on a holiday weekend should be plenty of room. North end of the harbor outside the channel is mostly shallow. There are moorings in the central area of the harbor but last time I was there the southern end had lots of room and good depth for anchoring. I was on a mooring so can't comment on the holding.

I went through about four weeks back. Shallower draft than you so wasn't looking that close but did not notice any change in depth from last year. Just stick to the channel, especially just inside the entrance.

Re: Lake Tashmoo Entrance

we go to tashmoo very often. We just came back yesterday. Tide range is not that much (maybe 1.5' either direction, give or take)... but it makes a difference!

Our 5' 6" draft is fine. On low tide I WILL bump the sandy bottom entering/exiting, but can get out. I wouldn't attempt to enter/exit tashmoo with a 7' draft at low tide, unless you want to dredge a new channel!! Either way, enter/exit with some moderate throttle and speed, don't want to get stuck! you should be able to plow through the sand if you get stuck, if you have some momentum.

Entering, watch out for middle ground. I can get over it. But 7' might be pushing it.

Also when at the entrance, stick to the left side of the channel. I always get stuck just outside if I am not to the very left of the entrance.

In the channel, stick to the very left, almost like you can jump to shore close, it is the deepest water. It may feel un-natural, but you will ground if you go in the middle of the channel.

mid to high tide, I have about 6"-1' below my keel once I enter, Once into the pond I have no problem. anchoring in the deeper part of the pond is mud and eel grass - ie have a very good anchor, and watch for wind shifts. You will have your anchor pop out and not reset if it shifts if you have anything other than a modern style (spade, etc) anchor. been there. done that. got the tshirt. You should see other sailboats anchored. thats where you will anchor. I use about 80' of rode to anchor

Re: Lake Tashmoo Entrance

although it is not very granular, you can see the track going into tashmoo with our Ohlson (5'6"), over middle ground, and through the entrance, and where we anchor - http://www.findmespot.com/spotadvent...?tripid=338847

You can zoom in on the chart (and change it to satellite if you want too).

At the end of Lake Street there is a dinghy dock (always quite full, but always find a spot), and a short walk to Vineyard Haven

Re: Lake Tashmoo entrance

Just a note there is no longer a channel marker outside the entrance of Tashmoo. So don't look for it!

Re: Lake Tashmoo Entrance

We have friends with a CS 36 that draws 6'3". They go into Tashmoo regularly though I don't think they've been this year. They haven't had any problems.

Thanks for the info. Looks like you stayed on the east side of the channel as others have mentioned.
