Sheesh. Couple of real sad cases there. And all paying some kind of slip rent, I assume. Kinda makes you wonder.

There are two things in life of which I am sure.

1) One can't BS a BSer.

2) There is no shaming of the shameless!!

Yep, every single one in a pen, paying between $2k and over $3k a yr.. some have never been out for yrs.. I've been at that Marina over 12 months now and with the exception of the steel motor launch never I've seen anyone go near the boats. The motor launch went out once (thought he was taking it somewhere to die lol) but came back a few hrs later.

The yacht with the grass in the cockpit is in the pen next to me,it's always had the hatchway open so anybodies guess what it's like inside.

This one sank last winter. This is a before shot. It's a lot cleaner now and the guy is still working on it.

The high mountain lakes we sail on require all boats to be removed from their marinas every season. I've always thought it would be nice to be in a year around marina......I'm kinda rethinking, there are some definite advantages.

Yeah we got it easy here, I doubt I could cope with having to anti-freeze the engine every winter, worry about frozen sea cocks and the like.
We can sail all year round if we want.
