Finding Kingman by Sea:
Use NOAA charts 13236 (1:20,000), 13229SC (1:40,000) and 13230 (1:40,000). Use tide tables for Newport. High tide is approximately 24 minutes later. Low tide is 18 minutes later. Multiply by 1.1 for height at high or low water. Mean tidal range is 4′.
From the North via the Hog Island Channel and the Cape Cod Canal: Give Wings Neck at least 500 yards of clearance as you round it. You may want to clear Q G G “1” at the southeastern end of Hog Island Channel before heading southeast into the harbor.
From the South and West: Straightforward approach except for Southwest Ledge and Seal Rocks which extend to R N “10,” about 0.9 nm west of Scraggy Neck. To clear these rocks, continue northeast in the Cleveland Ledge Channel until you are more than 1.0 nm north of Fl R 4s R “4”. This gives you clearance of Southwest Ledge as you turn east into the harbor.
Entering the outer harbor heading towards Bassetts Island, give RG N “ER” plenty of room. This junction buoy identifies Eustis Rock, with a 5-foot spot just east of the marker.
At R G N “ER” you have a choice of two entrance channels, north and south of Bassetts Island. The north channel has an 8-ft (mlw) controlling depth and winds its way through Pocasset Harbor. Stay close to all the buoys and don’t cut corners. The south channel (controlling depth: 6-ft mlw) leads directly into Red Brook Harbor, and while it is a bit more shallow, it is also less convoluted and confusing.
Kingman Yacht Center sits inside (east) of Bassetts Island, with its mooring field to port (north) of the channel running into the harbor. The marina monitors VHF channel 71.
