Webeck Harbour is too open to be safe in heavy weather, but is a useful anchorage in settled conditions.
Approach and anchorage
Grave Bay is a shallow, sandy cove on the S shore of Webeck Harbour. The bottom is flat and level sand, but has a depth of only 4 ft 6 ins at low water springs. Swinging room inside the cove is restricted by at least one boulder, standing 1 to 2 ft above the otherwise level bottom.
Iron Bark, with 5 ft of draught, grounded on hard sand at low water springs, then bounced off a boulder several times, after lifting off with the tide. The anchorage is only really usable by a shoal draught vessel, preferably on a neap tide. Unfortunately, there is no other good anchorage within easy reach.
The cabins in Grave Bay are derelict.
