I captained a C&C 36 sailboat from this Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum to Port Huron Yacht Club. It took about 3 days to prepare for the long journey so I spent a few days exploring the marina and surrounding area.
I first discovered the PPY Marina when my brother bought his Columbia 8.7 Sailboat which was on the hard in the PYY Marine yard. We worked on the engine, replaced the fuel tank and painted the hull of his boat before the PPY team used the boat lift to put the “Defiant” into the water. The marina also provided a diesel engine mechanic to help get this old engine started and a mechanic to adjust the stuffing box.
Located at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay this cove does not offer any anchorage but it does have an excellent marina named Little Creek Marina. This marina shares the The Little Creek Inlet with the US Navy and a commercial fishing fleet. When you enter the inlet you must keep a sharp eye out for the first turn on the right side where the marina is located.
