I did have one in 2006, I paid $1640. It isn't available I checked.

We live on and go to work from our boat. We pay NZ$850 a month (about US$600) for the slip and a live-aboard levy. Beats the heck out of renting a house. We have a nice home 10 miles from our boat. Someone else pays us rent for that.

You guys need to spend some time in the service. My slip at Quantico Marine Base is $5 per foot per month, or $2100 per year. That's on the Potomac River but still good. I had a slip at Herrington Harbor two years ago, on the Chesapeake, for about $4000 per year.

I have a mooring, it's a floating dock anchored at both ends. $25 a foot but no amenities. I do have access to the transient slips which have power and water. and it's in a nice little, very well protected harbor. Cost me $762 for the season.

Freesail,

I lived in Ocean City, NJ and kept my boat in Barnegat, Dillons Creek Marina on Toms River. I also kept it at Great Bay Marina (next to the Viking plant) on the Mullica although there you may have to motor some to Great Bay to really have wide open sailing. I stayed in Dillons Creek for 8 years. I was always going the opposite way of traffic on the weekends as it was headed south and I was headed north on the Parkway. Took about 45 minutes to 1 hour to Toms River and 30 minutes to Great Bay. Great Bay though had mega greenheads.

Barnegat Bay had some of the best sailing as you have the onshore breeze with no waves every afternoon kicking it at 15-25 knots, and your ruj north back to the river was almost always a broad reach. You can head out Barnegat Inlet in the AM, but in the afternoon it is one of the most trecherous places I have ever seen.

From Great Bay you can head out to the ocean...about 1 hour to Little Egg Inslet whiuch is navigatible, but you should use local knowledge to helpm and in rough weather dangerour also.

These could be alternatives for you. I am not sure where you live. Barnegat Bay has many marinas on the mainland side including Forked River as well as other mainas up the Toms River. There are great weekend places to anchor in Barnegat bay as well.

PM me if you want.

Dave

We have a slip year round at the Maryland Yacht Club on Rock Creek on the Patpasco River (can see Eastern Shore and across Patapsco from dock). We do have a pool and restaurant which can come in handy sometimes for guests but we rarely use them. Slip fees for 46 foot slip is $1785 or $39 per foot. You can stay year round in the water and it is a hurricane hole. Add memebership dues of $2300 or $50 foot, The slip really comes out to $89 per foot or $3650 a year. Great for the Chesapeake and the amenities when you think about it.

BTW the Yacht Club is not like the hoidy toidy Annapolis one, but down to earth people and of the 125 slip holders 50 or so are brother sailboaters.

I just went by the marina and put a deposit down for my summer slip. The season can't get here fast enough.

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.

And here I was thinking that $400 per month for a 40' slip was maybe a touch high. I reckon it's downright cheap considering the San Juan's are an hour's sail away. Looking around here, there must be some mighty wealthy folks about with all of these 50+ foot late model yachts around here.
