Big money wins everytime

Time to vote everyone out of office. I don't blame you for being angry. There are slips available around the lake, but you will have to drive. Up in Racine, I know there are a lot of slips available over at Skipper
Buds. They have some deal with the county that makes it better for them to charge high prices and have the marina half filled as opposed to lower prices and a full marina. Things in Racine are going to get tight for winter storage in the future, as one of the boat yards is working with a condo developer.

As you go north on the lake, slips are available. Sheboygan has a lot of room and

I wonder if things could start to get like there were in the 70's when a place for a boat was like gold. You did not buy a boat until you had a guaranteed mooring for it, which made selling boats pretty tough.

I digress. Can you get boaters to organize and change things?
