Short notice trip for the evening to Hingham. We booked with Carol over the phone. All very friendly and efficient. Assigned a T head for our 56ft Azimut. We arrived and called on Ch.9 for some help docking. The dockmaster arrived with a welcome bag of goodies and a key fob for the secure gate and helped us with lines. Dinner at the brewery that evening and brunch at Trident the following morning were both within 100 yrds of the boat. My other half found an exercise class before brunch and we stocked up at the local Whole Foods type super market and Trader Joes. An exceptional experience with great facilities, easy access and terrific service. Met some regulars on the dock who gave us some drinks then helped us with our lines the next morning. We will be back.
Very unfriendly marina and disorganized. We were absolutely made to "check-in" at the gas dock before we were told our slip assignment. This meant picking a side to put out the lines and fenders on. Of course after we docked and received our assignment, we were then told our slip required the lines and fenders to be on the other side. We were assigned the work dock, which had old wood docks with nail heads sticking out ( ouch on the toes). Their was insufficient power available on this work dock, even though we told them our needs beforehand, including the day before when we received a call from the marina confirming our arrival. The work dock did not have any lockable gate, which apparently was the main reason to check in at the gas dock beforehand to get a "gate key fob". When we complained to the dockmaster, he said that they usually don't have transient slips and that we were lucky to get a spot. This left me thinking that this marina is somewhat confused and very unfriendly. Luckily the surrounding area ( a former shipyard turned into restaurants and shopping) was nice. I would not stay at this marina again.
