We anchored here on 11/09/09 while heading south to FL. We were running out of daylight so we stopped off Tuckahoe Point. There was only one boat there when we arrived, but by the time we were anchored and had a glass of wine, there were seven boats anchored for the evening.

We anchored with a danforth type and trip line. Turned out the trip line wasn’t needed. Holding was good. We experienced some bugs at dusk.

Anchored out just past Tuckahoe Point at around MM105. Headed South and wanted to make the canal run early the next day. Tuckahoe Point is buggy (mosquitos)! However the mosquitos seem to fade after you cut lights for a while. 6-7 foot depths, great wind protection.
