Sadly, I can believe that. The State Owned "Farley Marina" here in Atlantic City is run by the Golden Nugget Casino. Slip fees for the season, not the year, would run me about $3000 for my 23 foot sailboat.

I am going to be keeping my boat behind a friend's house. She has several slips she rents out at about $700 for the year. It just means I am a mile further from the inlet and do not have such niceties as cable, pumpout, and fuel in the same facility.

Maybe there is somebody in the area that rents out slips in Chicago? or even a nearby lakeside town?
