Unless your living aboard a 8' dink, I wouldn't bitch too loud, that wouldn't cover basic slip fees for a month around here

Are you sure you didn't hear about it before you got the notice ?

Doesn't sound like the kind of thing a marina would do with so little notice. Most people know about changes like that months before they actually happen, I would think that'd even be more true if you were living in the marina.

Maybe you were on vacation and the dog ate the first notice ?

Even money says he tuned out at the first less than tepid response and won't bother checking in for any others. I could be wrong, but the post just strikes me as one, from a brand new member, as one of those where he's looking for the full wrath and power of the internet and aggrieved live-aboards everywhere to come down on his side. Resulting in what? "Oh we didn't realize it was you. That notice doesn't apply to you. In fact we're cutting your rent in half and you can pay it whenever you want." (g)

$774 for 3 months...... I'll trade ya.

I have to pay the entire season in one billing, and it's a lot more than what you're paying. A lot of members here pay much more than I do anyway.

I've got an idea. It seems that you have not paid yet, so use your market power and take your money elsewhere. Find a different marina that suits your needs. That'll show 'em for telling you when you can and cannot pay. Of course, once you get to the new marina you'll loose you're marina "seniority" and you'll have to start over building up your rank until you can start telling the new marina how they need to operate their own buisness.

My marina issues a 6 month bill also, sent in January, due in February, for May - Oct @ $115/ft.
There reasoning is that they do not want to have "Tenent at Will" situations. Seems to be the same througout the Boston area.
Maybe he should count his blessings....

My bill is due next month, for the entire year in one go.

I'm willing to bet they informed owners of the 'change' if there was one; might you have been an exception to the norm?

I hear anchoring is cheaper.

Just goes to show ya can't keep em all happy

Berth fees are an annual contract here an they have just started allowing quarterly payments this year

Yearly fees for a 40' $7500 or quarterly @ $1875 an it is the cheapest marina on island.

So Count your blessings, cheap skate.

Chances are your not going to like the new place any better.
We like a lot of others have to pay for the 6 month season up front. $3500.00

Or it could be another, I came here to hear what I want to hear.

Don't know the area, but using GE (needed to correct his co-ordinates), it seems like a very nice marina on the Perin River, VA - in the lower Chesapeake.

I would have guessed much more money for a 12 month liveaboard at that location. My marina charged $6,000 just for a 6-month season - in advance.
