we pulled in last year at night during a storm, we were about 17 miles out when we decided to take cover and we phoned several marinas
to see if they could put us up.....we were told no, that by the time we got in they would be closed and there would be nobody there, this was the answer from the few we called, we were also wondering if they could tell us what time the bridge opens and closes, and nobody knew that answer, which is supprising since they work at marinas....
we entered this unfiamiliar harbour with a well marked channel at night that zigs zags as you enter while the tide was going out.....(yup we did everything you should not do without touching bottom or breaking anything)....we tided up to a fuel dock
, because when in doutb I always head
to the fuel dock since there is always water there....we tide up for a few hours and left at first light....
plenty of big boats there and it looks like a great place that you should spend a few days there, just dont be in a hurry like we were
