I had ruled out Forked River/Lanoka Harbor because of the depth, I wasnt' comfortable with it. If I said Toms River, I appoligize, I must have misspoke. The only marina I had chosen that I liked was in Tuckerton, and the biggest factor was it's proximity to a friends house who also happens to be experienced on the water, albeit power boats, not sail boats.
I looked at sandy hook/raritan bay. There are a couple nice places, though the waters seem questionable at probably 70% of the marina's I was looking at. The problem with that, however, when I called the marinas there that could accommodate the boats all had at least a year waiting list.
You hit my requirements square on the head. However I have no idea if such a thing exists. If not, obivously I'll have to bend somewhere, but I thought I'd start there, and work my way down.
When I first spoke to the owner, he said that he was told 5'6" but he said he measured it himself and he said it was closer to 5'11". That's what I'm going off of, I could not find the factory specs on it. Still, if you're going to make a mistake on something like that, it's better to go up i would think.
I don't know the boats, that's why I ask. I don't know hte marina's, that's why I ask. I don't know the waters, that's why I ask. A few days ago the forerunner was in tuckerton with the 31' hunter. However, the marina could not accomidate the depth, nor could hte inlet. It was out. The boat deal didn't pan out, so I'm looking again. If I find nothing, when I re-evaluate my parameters, I'll probably increase my slip fee to $100/ft.
I'm also waiting on hearing back from two marina's, two mile landing marina in cape may being one, on both water and seasonal availability.
