I think I might take Jim's suggestion and go to Dutch Wharf. They sound competent and seemed very interested in my business (i.e. gave me all the time I wanted on the phone). At $4.10 per sq. ft. the price isn't so bad either. The places closer to Stamford CT were hundreds of dollars more for the storage.

I can't recall if I've asked this question before - how bad are the winds on the sound during the storage season? Every place is recommending that I store with the mast down, and they all put surcharges on the storage price for storing with the mast up. On Champlain and in Annapolis, I never had anyone push to store with the mast down. I know it's safer to store it with the mast down, but is there a reason why they push so hard on the Long Island Sound to do it?
