Mooring risk benefit analysis
In central Connecticut on the long island sound the marinas charge from 2,000 to 4,000 per six month season for a 27’ boat. My captain is paying 3,000 which is $500 per month, ouch.
I know a guy who moors his 28’ Pearson Triton in a not particularly sheltered spot. He pays a local marina $150.00 twice a year to haul and set the mooring. He has to dingy to the boat of course and has an arrangement with the people who own the beach so he can leave the dingy on the beach.
Any thoughts about how this may work out.
Any other ideas of how to keep the boat in the water and not pay “Brewers” prices?
I thought I had a good idea but I found out that even the retired people who have docks on their property charge 2,000 to 2,500 and the water depth is not so good.
The town mooring is cheap only $500 per season but the waiting list is 10 years.
