SHIMSHON is on a distinguished road
trip up the east coast to maine

SLIPS CAN RUN ANY WHERE FROM $1/FT to $2/FT DEPENDING ON MARINA AND POPULARITY OF THE AREA.
MOST MOORINGS ARE$25-35 FOR THE NIGHT. TYPICALLY, IF YOU HAVE RENTED A MOORING, WHOM EVER MAINTAINS OR RENTS THE MOORING WILL HAVE DOCK SPACE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR TENDER. IF YOU HAVE ANCHORED AND COME IN WITH A DINGHY YOU WILL BE CHARGED ANYTHING FROM ZERO TO $5.00, ONCE AGAIN DEPENDING ON THE AREA. DURING THE SUMMER IT IS BEST TO HAVE ADVANCE AND CONFIRMED RESERVATIONS FOR BOTH SLIP SPACE AS WELL AS MOORINGS. IF YOUR THINKING OF GOING I WOULD MAKE RESERVATIONS NOW-MOST MARINAS WILL SEND YOU WRITTEN CONFIRMATION IF YOU MAKE THE RESERVATIONS FAR ENOUGH IN ADVANCE. JUST REMEMBER THAT MOST MARINAS ARE IN BUSINESS TO MAKE MONEY DURING A VERY LIMITED SEASON, THAT DOES NOT EQUATE TO UNFRIENDLINESS. MOST ARE INTERESTED IN YOUR COMING BACK AND WILL EXTEND THEMSELVES--THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS< BUT THE WORD GETS OUT VERY QUICKLY. ALSO MANY OF THE REALLY POPULAR AREAS PROVIDE LAUNCH SERVICE FOR $4-$5/PERSON, ONE WAY.
