Re: slips in Grand Haven
I believe North Shore in Grand Haven has some Floating and also some fixed.
Which Marina were you at on Lake Mac?
You might want to check with you marina and see if they can lower your dock.
If you were happy there and the only down side was the fixed dock, tell them you are taking your business elsewhere unless they lower your dock.
I am at Eldean's, we love it there. Our dock always required the use of a ladder and it was bearable for the first 5 years as it was only a rung or two down.
At the end of last year it became dangerous as we had to climb down three or four rungs to board the boat. They lowered our dock Three Feet this off season and we now believe we will be able to step right on board. Of course, they can't get to everybody.
You might ask your marina if it is possible.
ALSO, consider that Lake Macatawa and most of the marinas are deep water. We still have over 13.5 feet in our slip. Not sure you will find the same water depth on the Grand River.
