From the north, head for Nun “2” and then turn west to enter the harbor. From the south, leave Nun “2SR” marking Stones Rock to port and follow the deepwater line until you get to Can “3” at the south side of the entrance, then turn west and follow the marked channel staying in the middle until you get to N “8” marking the southern tip of Stage Neck. There you will make a sharp turn to starboard. If the tide is running hard, watch that it doesn’t push you to one side or the other, and be alert for other traffic in the channel heading seaward. Leave G “9” to port, and you will be in the harbor.
CAUTION: The tide swirls around in the harbor, so boats go every which way. If there is a large boat on a mooring nearby, you might be wise to check the distance. We bumped in the middle of the night one time when our 44′ sloop bumped stern to stern with another boat swinging in the opposite direction. It resulted in quite a fire drill.
