Cheap Marinas in WA?

Recently the possibility of needing a semi/permanent slip in the Seattle area has come to my attention. Location is not necessarily of great importance, but cost, and attitude is. What marina's in the state would not offend my Alaskan sensibilities (i.e. not meddling with me and my activities too much) and would be reasonably affordable... I have paid as much as $600/month for a slip in the past, but now I hardly even pay that much for a whole year. A cursory search seems to indicate I will be looking at $8.50/foot and up... Yuck... Any hole-in-the wall backwater places that are cheaper?

South sound on the west side (away from Gig Harbor) should be cheaper. As far a messing with your activities the state regulations are pretty tight so the marina might not make much difference in that regard.

Be careful... our "high" prices are likely to make others pretty jealous...

Alaska is rightfully called the last frontier...Your sensibilities will have to change with the territory.
I owned and flew two aircraft in Alaska I never bothered with the formalities of licencing...Not a good idea down here.
