ok.. to anchor
in sd, one must first go to muni docks at shelter island and ask permission to anchor
in the cruisers anchorage. they will inspect your boat
then they will grant a permission to anchor for 30 days. the anchorage is next to uscg station between harbor island and downtown sd. is a piss poor anchorage but it does work
ok for short term. bottom is mud with pcb's-use gloves to retrieve anchor...
if you are willing to spend whatever the new rates are on the muni docks, stay there as long as you can and advertise in downwind marine
on their board for crew.
advertise on channel 68 at i think is 0800, but might be 0830 on the cruisers' net, if it is still up and running, for crew.
there is someone going to be wanting a crew slot--good luck.
