ggorbach is on a distinguished road
My Newport 30 was kept in a slip (by the previous owners)where it sometimes bottomed out into a muddy bottom in Vallejo CA. The boat moving around eventually caused damage to the hull to keel joint. It cost them $1000 for the repair so paying a little more or having a good slip in a less convenient location may be worth it
