   There are two anchorages, one on each side of the Manatee River. (See information for the Bradenton anchorage.)
   In northerly winds, leave the channel near red marker 20 and curve to the left and back toward the marina on the northern banks.
   Opposite the entry to the marina is a park with fresh water and bathrooms. There is a substantial pool of good water and a paved ramp where a dinghy can be landed and secured. Grocery and hardware stores are within walking distance in Palmetto. Gasoline, diesel fuel and pump-out are available at the marina. Keep a lookout for the 3-foot patch of water shown on the chart.
