I would not anchor in either of these two locations shown by the western entrance to Elliott Cut. The current really rips through here because the river narrows down as it swings past the shoal. A better location to anchor is to the south-west, along the western shoreline just north of the St. John’s Yacht Harbor marina. Be aware that there can be a 5-6 ft. tide here when picking your spot to drop the hook. The current in that location is somewhat less, but be prepared to swing through 180 as the tides change. You can dinghy to the marina for ice, etc. Call them on VHF 16, they will shift you to VHF 71. Inquire about facilities use if you are anchored out. See the listing for this marina it is accurate.
