I agree about a club. We spent some time at Spicer's Marina in Noank and thought the costs were not unreasonable (for New England). The yard is DIY which is a major plus and there is a decent marine store on site. They have docks and mooring but I have no idea of price. The docks seemed a bit close together but obviously better for a 30 footer than a 45.

A plus for this is that Noank is a very pretty town in a nice area.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
