Only 57 days till sock burning for us. Hope to meet you this spring.

Dave -- There are two Bene 393's at Oak Harbor, plus a 372 (is that the right number? It's a 37 footer anyway.) Yes, the neighborhood is going down hill (JUST KIDDING!!!!)

My boat is on land right now, on the left if you are walking down the driveway to the travel lift pit. Just look for the Pearson 33 next time you are down.

Barbara is nice, and is the person who keeps all the others in line. She is great to talk to, kid with, etc. She's the power behind the scene there, so don't piss her off!!!!

Look forward to meeting you as well. We need to have that raft-up we have talked about with the other chef. I'll bring the wine.

Ask Alex if he shows up how I got enlisted as a human fender between his boat and a fat Euro stinkpotter....

He got a much nicer dock out of it, however!

To me, Charlie's boat sounds wicked fast and sound in a seaway. Also, if she goes over on her beam, the beam is that much closer! The most you can fall from a standing position is four foot eleven! Even my wife is taller than that!

33.5 x 14 - but then mine is supposed to be fat

My slip is 18 ft wide, so I have a positively easy time compared to most.

Previous boat was a 86' Hunter 31, 11'10" beam, in a 14ft wide slip. I've seen the skinny slips you guys talk about at marina's - but never at the private homes I dock at. Shame, a couple extra feet to a slip would make life a lot better for all. Vote with your props and move!

Our slip is 23 ft. wide, but that is for 2 boats. Share the well with a 1968 Bristol 29.

Vote with the prop, No where else to go. If I started working on it now, I might get a slip in another marina in about 5 years.

I've got a eight year wait in my community owned marina, for one of 6 slips that my boat can fit in, my cost would be 650 bucks a year.

I hear the average marina slip would cost me 4k a year and up.

I know of 4 privately owned slips I can fit in and all go for less than 2,400 a year - all within 10 miles of my house. I found them by doing the dinghy ride to the pier and asking the owner if they'd be willing to rent a slip. Folks I rent from are upper 70's so I don't know how long I can keep my current slip.
A little effort opens up possibilities.

xtatico1404 is on a distinguished road
I think that a good slip is one that is not too tight and not too big. I just moved a friends boat to a brand new marina and in order to save money he picked the smallest slip that he could fit in. On the port side we had teh pier and on the starboard a piling. We put fenders on the port side and had to wrestle with the boat for 2-3 minutes to squeeze a fender sideways on the piling.

This is in the Caribbean, and I am sure that the boat will not survive on that slip during a storm or hurricane, it will beat itself to death.

I heard it was your physical resemblance to a fender that got you the job.

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.

Most private slips in our area are too shallow for sailboats with the contiued drop of water levels in the Great Lakes. The others are for sale, starting around 50k.
