How does transient dockage work at Metro? Is it just a place to go for the day or can you overnight, too? Is there a harbor master to call on the VHF to get a slip assignment? What about getting in there - anyone have any recommendations on deep water approaches from the lake? Are there channel markers? I've heard the water gets real shallow outside the channel getting into Metro. Gee I am just full of questions today! Thanks!
You are correct about the water levels there. If you stay about 1/4 mile out then go straight into the channel you'll be fine.
As far as staying there, You dock wherever you want then pay the harbor master for as long as you want to stay. They have a sea wall that is cheaper than the wells.
The wells have water and electricity though.
There is no assignment. Meaning if you leave you lose your well. I know it sucks but that's the way they do it.
Still a fun place though.
check the charts... it is very shalow just sounth of the channel, the markers dont go way out where it is still shalow on the south side, the north side is a little more free after the markers but its still shalow... chart shows it all tho...
