A mixed bag at Minneford. PROS: Close to lots of restaurants on City Island, well maintained floating docks, immaculate restrooms. CONS: Did not respond to phone calls the day of our arrival. Contacted via radio at mouth of marina and got confused instructions on our slip assignment. No dockhands to assist. The harbormaster left for the night without giving us a keycard to get back on the docks after dinner. Noisy with lots of people partying on Friday, Saturday nights.
