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.
In South Africa doing lots of boat stuff. Departure north from Cape Town around December 15th. Arrival in the Caribbean around the beginning of February, after 5300 miles or so.
