Assessments can be a killer, just like living in a condo. Talk to the marina manager, other slip holders, and the maintenance guy. Are there any planned upgrades or major maintenance projects in the near future?

Are association dues paid monthly or quarterly? Do you get a discount for paying the year in advance? Have the dues been pretty steady or have they gone up every year?

Talk to other slip holders about the association. Are they OK or are they a real PITA. Dealing with a self important dock nazi can make you miserable.

Insurance will be different in every state. I would also have a title search done on the slip. Make sure their are no liens.
