Scituate Question

Am bringing new (to me) boat gradually down to CT from Marblehead. Instead of initial plan to go to P'town, I've got to shorten this leg and go to Scituate. My plan is to do this, this Saturday. Then I need to leave the boat for one week for work and come back and sail it further. I assume mooring is cheaper than slip, but I see mooring charges at 40-45 a day in this locale. Do they ever charge weekly transient rates and if so, what should I expect to pay? I am already explaining purchase of boat to my wife and am trying to avoid explaining need for to pay 280 a week for boat to sit each week while I hopscotch it down the coast. Any info would be appreciated.

Are you a member of any boat or yacht club? If so, you might try contacting Satuit Boat Club or Scituate Yacht Club to ask if they have a transient mooring available (on reciprocity). Even if you're not a member of a club with reciprocity privileges, they might rent a mooring to you at a more reasonable rate, particularly given that it's off-season now.

Also, try contacting the Scituate Harbormaster. Boats have already begun to haul out and there should be some options available other than the private marinas.

Just was in Scituate

We paid $35/night with Scituate Launch/Cedar Point on Sunday night over Labor Day. I am sure if you contact them, you could work out a deal for less. Also try contacting the Harbormaster, sometimes you can work out a deal with him if he knows of an empty mooring for a weekly storage.

Nice harbor. Will definitely visit again.

We aslo wen to P'Town, which is more expensive $45/night/mooring.


If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
