Lambs Yacht Center is one of the fine facilities located on the Ortega River, just upstream on the St. Johns River from the downtown Jacksonville waterfront. These good people are Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net sponsors.

Lambs is a first class facility. They have some of the best mechanics and repair facilities available in this area. Very protected location on the the Ortega River. This place gets my highest recommendation.
We are now at Lamb’s Marina on the Ortega River. The marina is probably not the ritziest facility for transients (no laundry and the showers are a long walk from the dock and not climate controlled)) but there is extensive shopping at the mall nearby and the staff at Lamb’s knock themselves out to be helpful. (The Chief Administrative Officer is going to drive us to the airport and someone will drive me to a laundromat and get me back.) There is an extensive repair facility which we are making use of. The slip fee for monthly stay on the uncovered dock is $8.50 per foot plus $36 electric. This is most reasonable for Florida. The covered dock is more and has metered electric. There is a security person who checks the docks at night.
