The only reason for pre-payment on a quarterly basis is if there is:

a. A Financial reward to the person who does this. Pay 3 months get X discount, 6 another discount etc...Prepaying 3 months is just another sham to earn more interest up front on money not yet theirs (the marina)
b. A person volunteers to pay because they will be out on business, more convenient, or intend on sailing for x amount of days beyond what they can determine of paying in person.

With the ability of direct deposit etc...

Sorry..

This is just another method to extort money. Because so many people are foreclosing on houses does that give mortgage companies a reason to charge quarterly? NO.... Because so many auto repos - does that mean your auto loan is based on payments every 3 months ahead... no....

A marina has no actual right to do such... you buy insurance - you can pay monthly, quarterly, yearly - you get discounts for doing so - but nothing prevents you from paying as you go....

Its a sham and I hope it doesn't find its way to the NW...and if not I hope others start a class action lawsuit...
