The most convenient anchorage off the town is 80 to 100 yards SE of the fishing company's travel-lift pen, in 24 ft. Good holding.
Tie the dinghy to the N face of the travel-lift pen, at one of the ladders.
The anchorage at Big Island is on the shelf between Northwest Point and Southwest Point. The shelf edge is irregular and depths drop off quickly at its edge. The best berth seems to be off the middle of 3 beaches on the SW side of Big Island, in 24 to 30 ft, stiff grey mud and stones. Good holding.
