Ok takeing yalls advice

I hope I put this in the right place if not MOD please move it ........

I am trying to close on a Bill Lapworth design Gladiator 24' boat flush deck design , looks sound and I want to get some time on this type of hull .. before I try to move to "The boat " 30+ footer...

Boat comes with everything except outboard for ( CHEAP) ..
My question is it's sliped in marina del ray . dont know the slip fees yet there ... but I am going to have a month to figgur this boat out and was hopeing any of you west coasters might know of a really cheap place to slip her , I am willing to go as far as puget sound if need be.. I really want to keep this boat a while (longer than a month maybe a year)but slip fees are going to eat me up ...yes I am on a fixed income BUT that is not going to stop me from the dream ! I have skills I am an engine man and a damn good one there is not a motor in the world I cant rebuild or fix..side jobs to keep me afloat also include computer tech , I picked this comp tec stuff up recovering from a corenia transplant ( eye) all good now ..

These are my skills and I need a place to park/ slip anyone knows of a place please let me know ...I will work my A$$ of for it ..I mean really...


Thank you everyone for the great forum...

here is a database searchable by locale, dunno if you will find the fees there, but you should be able to find links to marinas near by that either list fees or that you can call:

Marinas.com, World's Marinas Portal, and Marina Directory

Yes, this can be a problem. It's not just the slip fee but waiting lists to get a spot. So when you call around make sure you ask if there is a waiting list. You can go to this web site to research marina's for southern, central, and northern california, The Log.com Marinas Guide. From what I can remember during my search, marina's in the San Pedro area are fairly resonable. Good luck.

You will find the lowest cost marinas in So Cal
in the Wilmington or Terminal Island area of
Los Angeles Harbor.
San Pedro is is in the midst of major redevelopment
and all the low cost marinas have been removed.

Thanks all for he good links been on them all day looking around it will def help me in the future..


Sad to report the Gladiator owner seems to be on the fence about selling ( I think it's a wife said sell but owner really doesn't want to deal lol ) , told him had the cash will pay his asking price after that no responce ...

Can't blame anyone for wanting to keep thier boat
