    We keep our boat on Sue Creek right at the mouth of Middle River. We are at the Baltimore Yacht Club.

    We've had our 330 for 8 seasons and I've learned a whole lot from the kind folks here!

    Glad to hear you remembered the important things (Bar/pool table). He was either at the Bush River Yacht Club or Otter Point Yacht club. They both have a bar and pool table. I am down the river from both after you go under the train bridge. Good area and good boating people.

    ohh nice! I've been there before to get fuel. I was there during low tide and was amazed how shallow it got in there. We go out to the cove in Nj every now and then to anchor out.

    Yeah, all the marinas in the area have been silting in over the past few years. They want to dredge but it's expensive, plus a political minefield. Ironic because everywhere else on this part of the river is 50 feet deep.

    There are some great spots to anchor up and down the river. Which area do you mean? The island near the mouth of the Schulykill River is a good one, and we've also anchored in that cove by the River Winds just down from the island, but the cove gets really crowded. We often anchor up just past the Rancocas Creek behind a sand bar that comes up at low tide and protects us from wakes, and also a spot just up past the NJ Police station behind Burlington Island.
