Tom Bigbee ICW? Alabama Marina slips costs

Not that I ever will. I'm just wondering about the Alabama gulf coast and the ICW that runs all the way up into chattanoga? What is it like? I know it's a long long trip. I found some info with a net search not a whole lot.

ah.. found stuff on another forum. but I like sailnet!

The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway (popularly known as the Tenn-Tom) is a 234 mile long, 300 feet wide by 9 feet deep, artificial waterway that provides a connecting link between the Tennessee and Tombigbee rivers.
The waterway begins at Pickwick Lake on the Tennessee River, then flows southward through northeast Mississippi and west Alabama, finally connecting with the established Warrior-Tombigbee navigation system at Demopolis, Alabama.

If you check the Sailnet blogs from back in the spring, you'll find an account of a trip up to Tenn.

That is the Route for most who are going South to the Gulf from the Great Lakes.
You start in Lake Michigan at Chicago and finish in Mobile Bay.

I have a friend who keeps his Hunter in a marina in Mobile bay. While I don't remember the exact number, I do recall it was less then half of what I would pay in New Jersey for a marina with no services. Meaning just a slip or a pole to tie your boat up to. He had soup to nuts.

Nereus32 is an unknown quantity at this point
Hi Denise,

I just made a quick run up the Tombigbee River to Demopolis, AL. Demopolis Yacht Basin's dry storage rates are very reasonable. Don't know about wet slips, as I am interested in a haul out.

Marinas in Mobile seem to run about $10/ft. with a 40 ft. minimum (i.e. it will cost you at least $400/month there). I spent a month at Dog River Marina. It is about 200 NM on the river from Mobile to Demoplis, with limited stops in between. On the river, there ain't much, except the occasional barge tow. There is only one dock with fuel stop on this section of the river at Bobby's Fish Camp. North of Demopolis, facilities are suppose to be more frequent, but I haven't gone any further to find out.

If you wanna read the log of my trip, visit http://www.nereus32.com.

Steve

canoeman256 is on a distinguished road
DeniseO30,

My slip on the Tennessee is about $90/month plus electricity. I'm on Wilson Lake. The upper part of the Tenn-Tom has a lot more facilities than the lower section. Once you hit the Tennessee gas, diesel, guest/short term slips are easily found. Lots of good eating too.

If you ever get down this way, let me know.
