Eryka's advice is always sound. A good marina is like a good neighborhood, and makes a huge difference. It doesn't even matter whether they are powerboaters, sailors or houseboaters... just as long as they're good people. My marina is a mix of powerboaters, fishermen and sailors... and a good group over all.

When you have questions, post as much information and context to the problem, and I can guarantee that you'll get some solid answers.

Nothing is more annoying than when someone posts a question like, "My boat's engine keeps quitting on me, what should I do?" and they don't mention that they boat is new to them, but was sitting in a marina for six years neglected, and has six-year-old, untreated diesel fuel in it... If they had given us all the information to start with, they could be up and running that much sooner. UGH.

Good luck, and let us know if we can help.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
