cheapest mooring in gta

Does anyone know what the cheapest mooring in the gta is (Toronto,scarborough,Mississauga and surrounding area). I have looked into aquatic park sailing club but I can't find a cost. I am perfectly fine with a mooring ball as opposed to a dock in fact i prefer it, I just need to minimize costs while not jeopardizing the safety of my boat.

I know there are several mooring fields in Toronto and surrounding area but I can't seem to find info or costs. any help would be appreciated. also my boat is 30 feet lod 32 feet loa i don't have insurance, and probably can't get any until next season when I'm finished the work i plan to do, and she draws 4'6".

Re: cheapest mooring in gta

The issue may not be so much cost but availability. When we were looking three years ago anyway, space was a challenge and owning a boat with no slip to put it isn't a whole lot of fun. There are a lot of clubs, but then you end up paying initiation fees and buying debentures which isn't cheap...once you have that down though, they tend to be quite reasonable. If you want to go a little farther out, I think Newcastle is fairly reasonable from what I have heard. You may have to start making some phone calls to determine price and availability. Doubtful that you can get anything without insurance though.

You just need to have a boat.

A mooring at Aquatic Park will be the cheapest. Email them through their website for info on prices and availability. There is also room in that bay to anchor.

Actually there was a guy who anchored a 26 (or so) Tanzer in Humber bay park for over a year. Not suggesting you do that though as it wasn't pretty! Broke lose in the winter and got bounced around by the ice, washed up on shore, outboard got stolen, kids played on it....

Re: cheapest mooring in gta

We have friends at Aquatic park - it is a PITA to get to on weekends. You cannot drive into the park so you have to bike (~3km) or take their cart which is once an hour and often full. Also the stink from cormorants across the bay can be bad depending on the wind.

I am looking for a slip myself in the west GTA and everywhere except Port Credit seems to be waitlisted.

Mimico may have some slips unless you are over 40 ft. Awesome club.
