    Behind the island in the Wapoo Cut is about the best [anchorage near Charleston] – and you can dinghy to the Charleston Crab House restaurant and walk a half mile to a Piggly Wiggly and a Subway and a liquor store – though not necessarily in that order. You can dock temporarily at the City Marina for $5 an hour but the overnight transient rate is outrageous unless you are of mega-yacht status.

    Anchored here again 4-13-10. The mooring ball is gone so we anchored closer to the west end in 14 feet of water near low tide. Pretty good protection from wakes.

    Anchored here September 23 (and have before) just about at the large pole that says Freddy, Freddy, Good anchorage but always have the concern of being blown either towards the grass island or over toward the docks. There is a mooring buoy right in the middle of the curve that restricts where one can anchor.
