I was just on a 30' charter/lesson Tuesday with Just Sailing Inc. Justin was awesome and the Chicago municipal harbors that usually have a multi-year waiting list are all at 50% capacity. Monroe Harbor has moorings at $1,400 a season! That got me excited about livingaboard here, as well as, New Zealand!
My dad had his boat at Monroe from 1977 to 1979 and at Burnham until 1984. I'm pretty sure he was paying about $1,300 for the slip in Burnham back then. He had to pull a lot of strings and still had to wait two years to make the move from Monroe to Burnham.
