Define "best"

An "interesting location" would be somewhere like Port Townsend, La Conner, Friday Harbor, even Olympia. We live south of Seattle and kept a boat in Friday Harbor for many years. Lots of great things about that but quite a few downsides too.

Tacoma has several marinas that have a small or no waiting list. About $7.50 per foot per month for my 34' boat. Have to add power on top of that. The new marina at the Glass Museum in Foss Waterway is very attractive, right downtown, and close to a lot of amenities.

dohenyboy- Anacortes is a great little town and they have six(?) nice marinas there. Some are private that you can buy a slip in or sublease. I think a 36' at Skyline is around 40-50K to purchase, or about 300-400/mo. The Port of Anacortes runs a big marina, our 30' slip for the crab boat runs a little over 200/mo. Electricity is $8/mo. Anacortes is the closest place to moor your boat to the San Juans. It's about a 1.5 hour drive from Seattle depending on traffic(little longer on Fri. evenings). There are marinas everywhere up here, depends on where you want to locate, if you want the boat close to home etc. Seattle area is the highest price like the others have said, but there are lot's of alternatives. Hope this helps, John
