If you go up the ct river to haddam or portland you can save money on winter storage, and won't have to step the mast, and the yards are more diy friendly, not to mention cheaper than storing on the shoreline. for a slip or mooring take some rides and poke around the shoreline towns looking for the smaller mom and pop marinas{they're out there } . you'll know you found one when 1. they don't have a website, in fact the only mouse they have is the one that scurries around the office floor, 2. the only pool they have is for the super bowl 3. the bathrooms remind you of summer camp. seriously though try
clinton riverside basin marina, not a bad ride from central ct and a nice town with nightlife and eateries, and they will be cheaper than their neighboring marinas that are equipped with all the bells and whistles.
