Winter Storage - City Island or Port Washington?

Taking some of the great advice that I received here (with thanks) this my first season and I kept my Sabre 30 on a mooring in Port Washington, which was great.

I looked at hauling for this winter at Manhasset Bay Shipyard and talked with the manager George over the phone he was a nice guy.

I had my main halyard re-run by the guys at the rigging locker, yes I'm learning the hard way

MBSY is $54 per foot for winter storage.. wow.

I sailed over to City Island one afternoon and looked at Minneford Marina, where boatmax is, they had a winter storage rate of $33 per foot...

That's quite a price difference and I'm looking for some of your experiences guys to help swing me...

This will also be my first time hauling... oh and I didn't tell you about my incident with that bloody submerged rock in City Island... I will be doing some keel work..

So first season, first grounding and lost the main halyard so far during my first solo...

Love it
