Setting — This conveniently located boatyard/marina is tucked into Shaw's Cove -- a very quiet, almost land-locked basin behind a railroad draw bridge. A pool and flower-filled planters attempt, with some success, to soften the boatyard atmosphere and industrial views. Crocker's neighborhood is the beneficiary of the new riverfront park and boardwalk that runs from Union Station to Shaw's Cove, stopping at the far side of the railroad bridge - a 0.25 mile walk.

Marina Notes — *Rates: $2/ft to 45', $3/ft 46-59'. A family operation since 1881, Crocker's has been servicing all manner of vessels - small, large, power and sail - ever since. Basin is very quiet with very little roll. The railroad swing bridge opens on request (unless train is imminent) - Ch.13 - from 5am-10pm, Apr-Nov - other times 8 hrs. notice needed. Several sport fishing charters make their home here including Brother’s Too 447-8490 & M&M 437-3491. Good heads and showers and attractive 20 x 44 foot pool overlooking the docks and basin. Complete marine store onsite.

Notable — Within a mile is a major transportation hub - ferries, Amtrak, intercity buses - making this a good place to leave the boat or change crews. Buses go to Foxwoods & Mohegan Sun Casinos. The quickly revitalizing New London downtown scene is close at hand -- all packed into one square mile. Farmers' Market at E. O'Neill Dr. & Pearl St., Jul-Oct, Tue & Fri, 9:30am-2pm 442-1530. Sail Fest - early July, Harvard-Yale Regatta - early June, Italian Fest - early Aug. The "Discover Historic New London Shuttle" tours a dozen sites Sat 10am-5pm & Sun 1-5pm, $5; it leaves from Trolley Building. (O'Neill Dr. & Golden St.) every 30 min. Project Oceanology & The Lighthouse Program offer fascinating tours and cruises on maritime history, ocean testing, lobstering $9-17 445-9007.
