My 2 short cents

Sit on the dock for a few days.

I live on lake Cumberland ky known as the house boat Capitol of the world.

Things a different everywhere but a vast majority of houseboats are owned by old retired couples either as a retirement home on the lake or as a lake home when they come back from Florida.

Comming in at between 100k on the cheep to 10mil there aren't that many crazy houseboat parties going on around here.

Houseboat lanes are typically quiet little social porch sittings.

I'd rather be surrounded by houseboats than run abouts or the like anyday.

Anyway my 2 cents. But I suggest sitting on the dock on a weekend and just lookin.

Re: Choosing a slip at the Marina

Electricity and Power boats = Party City at my Marina. It all depends on what you want to do after your outing. We opt for relaxing, drinking a bottle of wine, and enjoying the quiet!

The slips with electricty and floating cottages look more like a weekend at a college campus with 50-60 year old students!

Re: Choosing a slip at the Marina

My marina has quiet hours posted from 11:00 PM to 08:00 AM....and a security guard onsite for enforcement.

Looks nice in her new slip...you made a good choice!

Re: Choosing a slip at the Marina

Thanks all !!!

I've been to the dock on Sunday and a couple of times after work already, the dock is pretty quiet, and it seems the fishing is pretty good too..... already met some of the other boat owners, all nice people, I think I'm going to like it here

I like a party here and there, but with about 85 houseboats on the same dock you are bound to have one every weekend and all those guest will be passing right by my boat on that other dock. I like it where she is...., if I'm in the mood for party I can always go to Cocktail Cove and tie up to the other boats...

Again, thank you all for pitching in !!!!

Re: Choosing a slip at the Marina

Wow, you have huge slips there. Mine is crammed into a little slip (I have about 18" between mine and the neighbour's boat), rickety old finger, and a right swine of an exit.

Why?

Looking at the picture, I don't see a need for them. Looks to me like he's well protected, deep in a marina, no tides to affect dock lines, plenty of room to get in/out....I just don't see a need for the lines....unless there's an unknown factor in his situation that would call for them.
