Nice that you enjoyed Tashmoo! But I don't recall
mud in Newport where we used to anchor
off Ida Lewis Yacht Club. But today, that area might be restricted as available anchorages
shrink in size and availability.
Pond can be mixed. I have had good and bad experiences. There is quite a fetch for winds from teh SW and I had trouble in there with a Delta
anchor. It does offer solitude along with a short dinghy
ride to either the town dingy dock
near the ferries or to Maciel Marine's dinghy
docks. Maciel by the way is very accommodating offering free trash disposal and potable water. They also offer gas along with a marine
supply store. Access is limited though to smaller boats from what I remember.
