I am assuming not, but I am curious? We are camping at Pickens in a few weeks, going to have the boat with me on the water all week, so was looking for the closest fuel on the water. Looks like Marine Max across the bay, unless Sherman Cove is an option?

If you've never been to Sherman Cove, stay in the channel or you will ground yourself.

Launched a 29ft Proline quite a few times out of there, it is tight. But I am pretty sure I will be fine in my 18ft

Curious, how or where are you leaving a boat in the water at Ft Pickens? No marina, so beaching it or anchored nearshore? May be restrictions to that?

Many years ago, In would call around and get the best price on fuel, Shermans always had the lowest. This was when fuel was $4+, and I needed 300 gallons.

I would pull into Shermans with my 36' Gibson Houseboat and take on the 300 gallons, no problem.

They must be getting lax. Years ago before I knew better, we pulled up to the dock and were told that we could only buy fuel and nothing else unless we had a military ID. Seems they can't refuse to sell you fuel, something to do with maritime law.
