A lot of marinas in the seasonal sailing areas charge by the foot for the sailing season. So he's paying $88 per foot for the six or seven month sailing season. The typical season in New England runs from April until November. Winter storage charges are a lot lower, unless you're in the water.

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.

Here in Grand Haven, Michigan I'm paying $1995 for the season, which is May 1 through October 15th. Moorings are about $300-$700, but don't come with the amenities that my family enjoys (pools, warm showers, clubhouse, power, cable, phone, etc.).

Slips for a 40 footer in the lower Chesapeake and NC (not Norforlk) run around $2500 per year. You're paying too much Giu!!
Actuallly...Annapolis rates are about $10K

Alex , you can say some extremely sensible things when you put your mind to it .

We do all bitch and whine about what it costs to keep our respective holes in the water afloat but as Alex say's, any of us who have sumfink wot floats should be damnable grateful that life has bestowed such bounty on us.

For the record our mooring costs us AUD275.00 PCM. If we went on to the marina it would be AUD$675.00 PCM. Oz Buckazoid is currently buying USD0.93 for comparisons sake. Sydney has a relatively mild climate more dry than wet so we are happy to be on mooring. If we lived in wetter climate or if we were living on board and still going to work I'd want to be on a marina.

A 50' slip in Longport NJ is just over $6,000 for the season. $7,500 in Atlantic City. Yikes!

We're paying just under $8/ft/month ($3200/yr for 35 ft) plus power($500/yr)... across the harbour and elsewhere rates are upwards of $15/ft/mo.

Not bad compared to many of you... and these are 12 month "years" - but where we lived before we were paying $1.25/ft/mo (and they still are) so this was a big hit when we moved.
