Additional info:

Approach

In the turning basin, just in front of the large storage fuel tanks is the entrance to the channel. This channel is dredged by the Army Corp but at low tide, there is just 6 feet of water and you need to follow the channel carefully. The channel is well marked with buoys which are set out seasonably. Be very very careful if you attempt this channel after dark. The channel shoals very quickly and the bottom is very rocky.

Reviews for Metropolitan Yacht Club
Huricane Hole, 2012-12-31
Captain: , Braintree, MA (53)

While this is a private YC, because of its location it is probably one of the most protected "hurricane holes" in the Boston area.
