Bel Marra Anchorage (Statute Mile 1042)

This lake-like body of water makes for a great anchor down spot, in a region where there are few anchorages available. However, as far as I know, there is no dinghy/shoreside access available.

Used this anchorage for the first time and found it to be a great place. Had heard of low water at entrance but found no problem on less than 1/2 tide. Even though it was Easter weekend the wakes never bothered us in here.

    Anchored 12-23-2016 Wind E / ENE /ESE 10-15 mph Upon backing down on 35 lb CQR with 5/1 scope 3/8 chain anchor held until up to approximately 2,000 rpm. Then it would slowly drag. I added 10 lb cadenary weight same drag rate once rode was taught. We came to the conclusion that since the wind shouldn’t shift we would stay. Conclusion anchorage is fine with a chain rode or weighted rode under light to moderate conditions. I wouldn’t stay here in anything over 15 mph winds or stay with forecast shifting winds. Otherwise it’s a fine fair weather anchorage. Baba 30 Twilight
