Re: Criteria for choosing a marina/ yacht club

As others have already pointed out, it has to be close to home.
  • 1 hour, door to dock is my cutoff.
  • there has to be space available... I tried several that did not.
  • must allow me to work on my boat.
Nice to have;
  • good docks - the admiral would not be happy with wobbly docks.
  • pretty setting - I prefer to look at trees and homes, rather than the back of a ship yard.
  • near a "packie" (it's a New England thing)
  • food/dining nearby
