The message below was copied from the American Great Loop Cruisers’ Association forum. Captains Patty and Robert give excellent advice about Dog River repair yards and navigation.
There are many good yards in Mobile. We have used and also heard good things about Dog River Marina which is up the Dog River. We usually stay
at the Grand Mariner across the river as they have a wonderful seafood restaurant up the stairs.
Go to Dog River but do it in the daytime–fist time we did it was by moonlight and searchlight trying to find the twisting route by markers.
