Living Aboard Narragansett Bay, West Shore

I'm considering living aboard in RI next winter and would like to know what experiences people have had at marinas on the west side of the bay. Things like winter slip fees, quality of shower facilities etc. I currently keep my boat in East Greenwich. Thanks.

I currently keep my boat on a mooring at the E. Greenwich Yacht Club. Unfortunately they do not allow winter liveaboards at their docks. I'm planning on buying a larger boat and would like to live aboard either this coming winter or the winter of 2009-2010 depending upon how things go with the aquisition process.

I assume you overwintered at Brewers in Appanoag and will be spending the summer in warwick cove? What can you tell me about your costs and experiences at Brewers. Thanks

Yes, I keep the boat at Brewers Cowesett for the winter, and then I am at Pleasant Street Wharf, in Wickford, for the summer.

Regarding liveaboard, this year the rate was $36/ft plus metered electric, and there are shower, washroom, and laundry facilities. I would suggest calling Matt St. Angelo at 401-884-0544, for specifics, tell him I referred you.

Overall, the yard staff is professional and responsive, and I find the yard and facilities well above-average.

PM me if you have further questions.

That's a great deal. I need to look over on that side of the bay.

NEB's rates last season (on the east side of Narra-Bay) were over $140/ft for a 7 month season - 36' slip. Of course, add the additional $$$ for a full-time liveaboard.

TB, that is WINTER, the in-season rates are $140-$145 / ft.

Things are not that less expensive on this side of the Bay, my mooring fee at PS is $75 / ft + $200 this year, up from $55 / ft just two seasons ago.

Oh, that's more in line with the market. Didn't realize that you were quoting just the off-season.
