Re: Anyone sailing Lake Pontchartrain?

After spending the day looking at marinas on the north shore, I've decided NOT to bring my sailboat here for now.

We looked at Lake Pontchartrain Harbor Marina (not deep enough), Cypress Cove (no electricity), Colbert Cove (no electricity), Heron's Way ($6.50 ft & electricity), Prieto Marina (6 yr waiting list)and the Landing (slip too narrow).

We also went to Northshore Marine Services but I feel they are way out of line in pricing. $1,400 to unload, two coats of bottom paint and drop in the water and we are not allowed to work in their yard, everything done must be done by them . . .

I know things here are changing so I don't have a problem leaving mt sailboat in Monterey Bay and paying someone to care for it. I will keep looking so it's not a rush . . . just not satisfied with what the local marinas have to offer.
