Trade Slips

With slips costing about 4g's around here (LIS) it occured to me it might be fun to find someone about 20 to 30 miles away and trade slips for a week or two.
We would both get to play in a different harbor for a few days, drive time would be minimal.

Anyone do this? What would we have to worry about?
How to find trading partner?
We are in Westbrook CT.

Check your contract. Most marina reserve the right to rent your slip if you are gone. They would probably charge the exchanger full daily rate.

I was afraid of something like that. Doesn't seem fair though.

Agree. Unless you have an equity stake in your slip ( private ownership) most marinas reserve the right to use your slip as a transient slip when you are gone. In my case, in a Municipal marina, if I allow someone else to use my slip, in other words any boat that is not mine, they can cancel my contract and remove me from the marina.
There are enough people in the marina that have friends waiting for slips so it will certainly be brought to the attention of the marina management.Be careful!
