Re: Anchorage in Dana Point, CA
and myself are now anchored in the east basin. We tried the west basin but it was full with 4 boats! Yes, this anchorage is tiny. I assume to discourage long term anchor
outs. The east basin is even smaller. We have 9ft. under the keel
and 100 ft of chain out. The bottom here was once bulldozed and feels like clay when the Rocna
dug, skipped then dug in. When we swing, we're within 20 ft. of a mooring
and 30 ft. from a marker...it's that small.
Ya...we could have anchored outside but figured this was a little safer. I hope I'm right.
