    Anchorages

    Another boat anchored off Normans with plane

    The thing to see at Norman's is the airplane wreck just off the east side of the island. After our experience at Allen's, Bob wouldn't even go in to look and we again anchored off the west side of the island.

    From MacDuff's website: "The most popular anchorage is at the south end of the island between the dock and the airplane, close to MacDuff's. Entering from Exuma Sound, a GPS waypoint at 24°35.76'N, 76°47.48'W, will place you approximately 1/4 mile east of Norman Cay Cut. Enter the cut on a heading of approximately 265° passing between the two large offlying cays to starboard and the two small rocks to port. (See chart #EX8). Once past the plane, anchor with 2 anchors and allow for current. This anchorage gets rolly in strong easterly winds.

    "There is a hurricane hole with the best protection inside the north harbor. The entrance is very tricky and must be entered at high tide allowing boasts up to 6' draft. Most groundings occur here, the outlying Cays and Pyfrom's Cay. Other boaters are usually most helpful if grounding occurres here."
