More Updates

For these I am grateful to Sharon and Paul Tisher of Maine

Marble Mountain
The spit on the west side of the entrance to Clarke Cove is now mostly under water, just covered by a few inches. Not shown well on any chart or my 2 plotters. Keep to starboard going in. The museum is closed.
the marina is long gone and there is not enough depth to anchor in the cove. It might be possible to do this just inside Dunphee Head , as in my description in the second edition. Don't try this if you draw more than 6 feet

Yankee Cove ( Whitehead Harbour)
Both my plotters show this poorly, with only one sounding for the whole cove. I've been here quite a few time and there is plenty of water as long as you avoid the rock that is just about in the middle of the entrance. Keep to starboard going in. The old paper charts show this much better. Paul and Sharon got help, as I have in the past, from the fishermen at Marshall cove. The little canal just north of the wharf here, that goes through to Port Felix, is now the site of a small park.

Sheet Harbour
Good reports of the restaurant at the Henley House, which is next to the Irving station that you see from the water. There may be slips out.
