Location: About 2.5 miles SE of Ropes, off the NW corner of Cliff Island.
Description: This is a large bay, open to the east, with fairly high but not steep shoreline. The shelter is quite good in all directions except NE.
Shore Mooring: “Little One” has moored “under the Eagle’s Nest” and reports that this is an acceptable though not terrific spot. Other places in both north and south bays looked like good possibilities – please explore and report.
Other Comments: There was quite a bit of mining activity on Deadbroke at one time – not particularly successful if the name is any indication. Ambitious explorers who are willing to push inland about 50 feet from shore will find a track (wide enough for a vehicle), that goes most of the way around the island, which makes hiking very easy. Just NW of Deadbroke there is another small island which offers a sheltered anchorage. Greg Pilot has used this bay, and he recommends it.
