A place to keep my boat

This is something which have been mulling over, and wonder if anyone has any constructive thoughts on it. I have a 38' ketch which I hardly ever use, but pay $304 a month to keep it in the marina. I was thinking that if I could find someone who had a dock and wanted to use the boat from time to time, we could work out an arrangement so that he (or she) could use the boat, and I could use the dock for no charge. Naturally full references would be required, and I would have to assure myself that the boat would be properly handled. Not sure of the legal ramifications. Anyway, if anyone has done such a thing, or checked into it, I sure would like to hear from you.

Not to make you feel bad.. but that' is a dream many many owners would want to come true. Fact is, most people don't want to use someone's boat even with assurances. Things like. What if the boat sinks at the dock? Fire, neglect after the "arrangement" is made, and a dozen more questions not thought of yet.

If you don't use the boat why not sell it? On the other hand $304 a month is not bad for a boat that size.

good luck!

Denise is probably right but on the other hand, I have made similar deals at varous times in my life. I have had someone allow me to keep my boat at thier dock if I took them sailing from time to time and taught them to sail. I also had use of someone's boat if I helped maintain it and took them sailing from time to time and taught them to sail so it could happen. If nothing else you might keep an eye on Craig's list for someone offering to rent a slip. More likely than not you will at least find a slip at a cheaper price.

Comments don't make me feel bad, Denise -- I did, after all, ask for them. :-) And thanks for the Craigslist suggestion, Jeff. I'll keep an eye peeled.

Well there is that guy up in the "Intro" section with a spate of bad luck...

I'm sure he'd be happy to watch your boat for you..

Nah. I can afford the slip rent, that is not a problem. I just hate to see the boat go unused. Let me share with you my idea of a perfect scenario -- someone over on the east coast, maybe Georgia, South Carolina, or even Northern Florida, has a dock on the ICW. He or she wants to maybe go to the Bahamas once a year and the rest of the time do a little day sailing, . . . just absolutely loves to tinker and varnish . . . :-)

Well I've got a mooring in long island sound, Ct if you want to go a few miles north.
I did your exact deal last summer and it worked out great for me and the boat owner.

Appreciate that. But I think that South Carolina would be as far north as I would want to go. And that is stretching it. Georgia or North Florida would be best.
