Bringing a new to us boat home to South Shore. The #1 and #2 markers for the channel into the marina seem pretty far apart. Anyone with local knowledge? Go in down the middle, favor one side or the other? Sailboat with five foot draft.
Looking at a couple of Whitby 42s. Trying to find out where the fuel and water tanks are located and their individual capacity. I know there is fuel tank in the keel but no idea of its capacity. I know the total capacity as built, but one boat had the tanks replaced/modified.
