We stopped here for diesel fuel. We backed into the fuel dock and the attendant gave us the nozzle. Then he found the pump didn't work. After calling several different people over to try to repair it, they told us they couldn't fix it and would have to call in outside help.
We left and headed for Doctor's Lake Marina. On a hunch we called them on the phone and their pumps were down as well.
We called back to Mandarin Holiday Marina to ask about other places to buy diesel and they suggested that we come back as they had people on the way to fix the pumps.
We did and after we docked we walked to the nearby restaurant for lunch.
To make a long story short, it was 4:00 PM by the time the pump was fixed. We got our fuel and asked if we could spend the night. They offered us a slip with power for free and we took it. We thought that was pretty nice.
The marina itself seems to be more for locals and a few liveaboards. It's a bit run down and there are no showers, but everyone we met was extremely nice and helpful. This is also a boatyard and they were bottom painting boats.
There is also a grocery store and more restaurants within a short walk.
