        I’ve anchored there around the bend, in the straight stretch of the river. A nice anchorage. You have grass on both sides so there’s no protection from high winds, but you’re well away from open water and boat traffic. Because of the local 8′ tides, be aware that you’ll have a strong current that reverses direction every 6 hours. My personal practice is to place one upstream and one downstream anchor, from the bow, so the boat swings from one to the other with the tide and current changes.
