Setting — Just around Northeast River's Hances Point, Bay Boat Works is tucked in a cove at the mouth of Hance Pt. Creek. A small blue dockhouse sits at the head of the two main piers. In the creek itself, there's a set of covered slips, some additioinal open dockage, and, farther up the creek, another set of covered slips. Just starboard of the main docks is the North Bay Bed and Breakfast, an updated classic bay cottage, dripping with wisteria.

Marina Notes — *Weekly and Monthly rates are flat fees, not per foot. DCM. A Clean Marina designated "model facility." Stationary docks sport good pedestals and full-length finger piers, all in very nice condition. Long, easy access fuel dock. In '03, the marina received the 3rd grant for a Bay pumpout vessel - it covers all of Northeast River, 7 days 8am-4:30pm (287-8113). Eventually, it will be equipped with a radio or cell phone. ($5 for the first 50 gal., $0.10/gal. thereafter). On-site Giordano and Dour Yacht Sales specializes in brokerage power vessels and new Silverton yachts. Bathhouse completely remodeled in '05.

Notable — On-site North Bay B&B has veiws of the docks and out to the river. In addition to rooms and breakfast, Bob & Pam Appletom offer sails on their 50 foot Gulfstar ketch "Journey," or on 42 foot schooner, Island Time, as well as "boat & breakfast" - a fun option if you have a crew overflow. If you're on your own boat (and it's breakfast time) consider giving them a call to ask if there's room at the table. They also bareboat charter smaller vessels & give sailing lessons. The bustling village of North East is 4 miles and well worth a cab ride - eateries, including famed Woody's Crabhouse, shops, and an interesting basket weaving atelier. Or dinghy or big-boat to the Natui-Goose Saloon - which offers dock 'n' dine and is a short walk to the Upper Bay Museum and town park.
