It seems to me that the era of private marinas is coming to an end. The city I am currently in has two large marina; one private and one run by the port authority. Over the last few years the private marina has slowly lost various facilities such as the boat lift, refueling dock, and now, the ability to dredge the marina. This is mostly due to environmental infractions and new laws. At the same time the port facility has been adding these, and many more facilities at a very quick pace. Sure, the state facility has stricter rules regarding waste, vessel maintanence, etc., but it is also safer, cleaner, and better maintained. Almost sounds like a socialist plot!
