It would be good if newbies read this post. 'Specially the ones whose threads start with "I am thinking of buying a 40 foot boat..." If I have a year that costs me less than $7,500.00 I give myself a big pat on the back for prudent fiscal management. (And then I go out and buy something )

Midlife...We sailed out of Stingray for many years. Had a slip on A dock near the pool...a great place! Join the YC if you haven't...a great group of people and lots of good activities and well...camaraderie!

Hmmm...I think owning a sailboat isn't expensive at all. I have a 19' trailerable centreboard and it costs;

mooring: $0

launch: $0

fuel: $0

survey: $0 (the boat only cost $3,000 and I just carefully followed good ol' Mr. Casey's advice...)

insurance: $120/yr (that is my big expense)

I even upgraded perfectly functioning hardware just because I wanted the shiny stainless steel cleats instead of the plastic ones (for example)...and that still only cost me $50 or so.

Considering what it costs to rent a similar boat around here for a day, I already have gotten all my money back!!!

Deltaville is a good area but a bit of a drive from NoVa, i think? It's about 3 hours away, right?

Stingray Point Marina

It's a pretty rural area around D'ville, which provides a great respite for those seeking refuge from the NoVa rat race.

Yep that's about right. We like getting away from the traffic and run away sub-division up here. We usually go down Friday afternoon's and get home Sunday evening. That's why a comfortable boat and enjoyable marina were important to us. The fact that moorage is cheaper down there is a bonus.

This is only our second season as boat owners so last season we just daysailed and spent the night in the marina. This year we are looking forward to getting out and doing overnights on the hook and even crossing the bay to visit Tangier and Onancock.

Cam,

I missed getting a slip on B dock very close to the pool by 15 minutes earlier this year. I saw the updated list on site, but someone had called ahead of me. Look like I'll have to put up with driving around to the pool side for another season.

I noticed there did not seem to be as many slips turning over this year as there were last year. I don't know if that's good news or bad news. I could mean people that are trying to sell their boats can't find buyers or it may mean folks feel good about the future and aren't selling boats right now.

Brak...that's right. That is a long way to go every weekend. Have you considered the Solomon's Md area...that might be a bit closer with better prices than the annapolis are. Spring Cove Marina there is VERY nice and there are others with less ameneties that are cheaper I'm sure.

Hookers and blow, which would be a good name for a Galway regatta.
