Re: Urbanna for marina location

I just drove through that area to look at a boat in Deltaville. The boat had been in Urbana before she was moved to D'ville by the broker. As I looked at the map, and considered the drive time down some quiet roads, I wondered why anyone would intentionally choose to keep their sailboat in Urbana. A power boat? That's another story - short shot out to the bay. But in a sailboat, that's an hour or more out to the bay, and along a fairly narrow waterway if the winds aren't favorable. Now, I'm "thrifty", so maybe the cost of marinas in Urbana were significantly less expensive enough to offset the inconvenience, but since I sail with kids most of the time, I want easy, quick access to the main body of water, even if it means an extra 15-20 minutes in the car.

I note that this is an older thread. Have you made it down that way to scout things out?
