    We stayed one night, good holding. No mooring balls anymore but not sure if anchors have been removed which made us hesitant. Anchor did hold well. House construction close by. Quick dingy ride to Grabby's, unfortunately Nippers was closed on a Tuesday. There were only two boats anchored and room for much more. No shelter from W wind.

    Good wind protection from North through South East. Would agree that West wind would make anchorage untenable. Due to thick grass in spots, essential to drop anchor in white sandy patches. Mooring balls are gone, but Grabbers has a new dingy dock for easy shore access. No wake protection from boats traversing Sea of Abaco but not too uncomfortable.

    The rock in the middle may or may not have a stake -- give it a wide berth. Holding is marginal in thick grass, make sure you anchor sets well; 6-10 feet at mean low water. Easy shore access on the beach next to Grabbers. Some moorings are available here, call Dive Guana on VHF Channel 16 for information.
