You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

k1vsk will become famous soon enough
Depends on if you want proximity to where you live and conveniences such as power/water availability. There is a wide range fro which to choose on both sides of the Bay. If you can be more specific, there are good yards around Providence, EastG, Wickford, Pt Judith, Newport, Portsmouth, Bristol, etc...

Not being biased, but one of the best and most secure marinas on Narragansett Bay is NEB - New England Boatworks.

Whether wet or dry winter storage, it's tough to find a marina with a gated entry, 24/7 security guards, video surveilance cameras, DIY work allowed (with some environmental restrictions of course), full electrical power & water, and a hurricane hole lagoon, linked to the bay via a narrow channel. It was formerly a PT boat base during WWII.

It's not inexpensive though, with this season's dry rates starting at $42./ft + 3.00/ft stands & blocking. Includes haulout with pressure wash & launch.

Thanks all, here's a little bit more info

I've been storing our boat at a yard for the past 6-8 years. Its convenient, relatively functional (although they put the boats very close together -which is a pain), and "reasonably" priced. However, the customer service periodically annoys me - hard to contact staff, never return phone calls, never sure exactly when boat will be hauled/launched, etc. Nothing really major, just lack of communication mostly. So every couple of years, I look around to see if I can find something better. And to this point have always come back to my old yard. But this year, we have a new boat, so maybe its time for a new yard???
So here's what I'm looking for - well maintained yard, driving distance within 30-40min of Rehoboth, ma, owner friendly, power and water available, staff that will respond, reasonable cost. availability of repair services a plus but not necessary

true blue - I've always considered NEB, but have not made the move because: a) would cost $2-300 more and b) be 15-20 min further from the house.

thanks

IWM

I'm on the West side of the bay so probably out of your driving range but in NGBay so I thought I should give you a reply. I drive 110 miles so you are looking for a luxury I'll never have I now store 'in water' in my marina in Wickford. I stored on land up at Quanset Point at R.I.M.s - Rhode Island Mooring Services for a couple years and was satisfied. Back 5 or 6 years ago when I summered at Greenwich Bay Marina (west-the main one) in East Greenwich and also dry stored there I was less than satisfied with some of their yard monkey work
