New to sailnet

Hi, we are a Kiwi couple cruising on a Moody 46 bought 6 years ago in the Med. We are holeing up in the Rio Dulcie Guatemala and will end up somewhere on the east Coast USA for the next hurricane season. On that note is there anyone out there who can either recommend a good, and reasonably priced, marina or are there private docks to rent? And how does one find a private dock?

Welcome aboard!
If looking for a private dock, consider posting an ad on craigslist as well as in The mainsheet and Good Old Boat.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

There are lots of marinas up the rivers in the Chesapeake bay area in both VA and MD. Many have haul out services and boat yards as well as slips for the winter. Active Captain or the Cheasapeake waterways guides have details.

Re: New to sailnet

The Rio is as safe as it get's in the huricane belt, I went through Mitch down there. If you look in online classifieds you may find houses on canals in the key's renting out their un-used dock space. But look into southwest fla. for a good place to hunker down for winter and affordable dockage. Tampa and south. and the temp. stay's mild to warm.

Re: New to sailnet

Hi from the West Coast of Canada. Haven't had a boat for about 20 years and am now retired and am looking for, probably an Alberg Sea Sprite. I started years ago with a Catalina 27, moved to a one-off Pungrafic 34, sailed for 2 years on the West Coast to Alaska, Queen Charlottes, and everywhere in-between. Probably the most beautiful area to sail in the world. (Now our idiot government wants to run tankers through it to send oil to China) Anyway, I thought about a 25' Catalina, a really nice sailer and comfortable but love the idea of the full keel on the Alberg. When we came back from the Charlottes those many years ago we were hit by the first winter storm out of Alaska and with only a modified fin keel almost lost the boat. Mast high waves and 80 to 100 mph winds. Life changing experience!!!! Can't wait to get back out there. Does anyone know how "trailerable" the Sea Sprite is?? Thanks, GabGuy
