That's lame. The port of Seattle makes you give up your slip if you sell your boat. The slip goes back in the pool and whoever is next on the waiting list gets it. Keeps it fair. I don't think anyone should be able to profit from a City owned marina. And what's with an LLC running a City owned property? Californians......
