While the empty dock
may look attractive, there may be other issues. I learned this weekend that a classmate has a private dock
in Marion, MA, where we would be welcome to tie up, were we to visit. Then I learned that there was only 4' of water
at low tide. If we stop there, he said he'd come out to get us in his dinghy
. But the dock will be empty, even though we are in town.
