Then my vote should be changed from 60 to 61? again, I don't see the point of the poll. If you are trying to determine size, then beam and height make a big difference, as does displacement.

I take it the dinghy dock is still in the same general location? It was very handy there near shore on the south side. We always anchored out in the Bell River.

As a larger size transient, you end up on the T dock often. We liked that, more privacy and a quicker exit if desired in the morning. We cruised a 61'LOA, 18'2" beam boat up and down the entire...

I don't like being drunk or deaf when at anchor, but maybe that's just me. Some people can sleep right through the slap, and some don't anchor out much or expose their boat to it. I really like those...

We chartered a few of those. In our case, the overhead wasn't so much of an issue (and I too am 6'2") it was the very loud bow slap, especially at anchor. It was impossible for me to sleep up there...

If actually so, 1000 feet is not very far... 1/6 of a nautical mile. Other than maybe the Herb River and maybe some spots on the Vernon River, I can't think any of the dozen or so Georgia anchorages...
