Put yourself on the wait list, most slips are not transferable, but, there are creative ways around this, such as, keeping the PO on title for one year as a partner, then he transfer 100% ownership to you and you keep the slip.

Also, do NOT put your faith in a broker to finding you a slip, they will set you up, but for a limited time, or BS you up to the point of you signing the docs and the drop the bomb on you, thinking your excitment over the boat will offset the reality of not have a permanent slip.

I had a broker drop this bomb on me at the last minute and I reminded him that a slip was the deal breaker and that I was walking, within 20 mins he had a slip, but neglected to tell the marnia people that along with my liveabord stat, we have dogs ( this is against marina policy ) so now I'm on the wait list again for 4 different marinas, with zero recourse towards the broker.
