Is it time for a short haul to clean the bottom before your trip ? The marine growth this year is more
aggressive than ever, with props, struts, thru - hulls, strainers and heat exchangers fouled with growth and barnacles.

Mini Golf is a Hit !
Cove Marina Mini Golf has provided Fairfield County with summertime entertainment for over 50 years. Our 18-hole course offers demanding play with true "pro golf" style mini golf. It is a place where people of all ages and skill levels can enjoy a round of miniature golf while taking in the wonderful waterfront views of Calf Pasture Beach and Long Island Sound.
The TV show "House Hunters" taped a segment at Cove recently that will air in four months. It involves a Norwalk family that is moving away and the things they will miss in the area, Mini Golf being the one they will miss the most !

Marine Safety Tip:
Depths on charts are always given at LOW tide (mean low water)
Bridge Clearance is always given at HIGH tide (mean high water)
On a chart, the INNER compass rose indicates magnetic North (what your compass reads)
A depth on a chart marked with an underline ( 2 ) indicates a spot (or rock) that covers and uncovers at high and low tide with the underlined number the height above the Chart Datum at high tide. For fun...... Look closely at your Norwalk Islands chart !
