Re: Criteria for choosing a marina/ yacht club

My priorities:

-- Near where I want to sail. Close to home is nice, but I can drive faster than I can sail.

-- Well run/kept marina. By that I mean that docks are in good repair, facilities are clean, management is responsive, and area is secure.

-- Friendly boat slip neighbors.

-- At least moderately protected from storms. I live about an hour from the boat and cannot check it as much as I would if I lived closer.

Nice to have:

-- Near a chandlery (as I always seem to need something I don't have right in the middle of a project) and near a good restaurant (to relax after I've finished fixing something...if I'm not headed out on the water).

-- Near services such as a pumpout, fuel dock, etc. but they don't have to be in the marina.

--Nice grounds and amenities. Appreciated, but I am willing to give here because for me the point of having a boat is to be OUT on the water.
