I don't have an idea of where to anchor
at Cumberland. Any suggestions?
The best & most popular anchorage is the ferry dock
- which is roughly across from the submarine base and east of the spoil island.
Since the ICW
serves as the channel for the sub base, the markers are frequently 'upgraded' - if you have an older ICW
chart (paper or electronic), don't be surprised if the channel marker numbers do not match. The best thing to do is (IMO) to check the place out with Google Earth
and be familiar with the approach (visually) as well.
I just returned to Minneapolis for a few weeks - should be back at Camachee before you guys leave ,however - if you'd like, I can show you the approaches, etc on the charts
. If interested, just PM me - I am at "L" dock
You are planning on bringing along a dinghy
, aren't you?
