Re: Hauled Out & Marina Closes, What Happens?

I think the best advice above is to ask the owner directly. Most rumors are usually just that. If there is any hesitance or evasive answer, launch, go somewhere else and hope you can get a refund before they go under. You can also probably get financial health data on the company from independent sources as well. If their credit rating, etc. are in the tank, the handwriting may be on the wall. Getting into a situation where you'd have to seek permission to get at your boat to get someone else to move it after the gates were closed (at great cost), does not seem to be a worthwhile risk. I'd GTHO if there's any truth in it.
