So, given this trend toward fewer and fewer liveaboard friendly marinas,
where could one moor/dock/drop anchor other than a marina?
Let's hear it!
Thanks to all who respond.
My friend ........ I not know what to say to be honest
I think it has/is becoming a small amount of integrity of people. It a two way street of trust! The marina want a reputable person as the boater want the same.
I hope you see.
I should *NOT* say, as many will not. Why? We not want to mess up a good thing.
You really need to get with people so they know you as a person. This the best I can say and be the person you are. They run lairs off, not take long to know a man/woman!!!!!!!
My marina is $700 per year and size up to 32', electric and water included. I as close to a car/truck as anyone for carrying to boat!!!!!! The guy do the labor, sprayed my boat with a pressure thing and made it look new!!! He was board! SO! it was free!! I buy him beer!!
That electric is a honor thing, it not like people run A/C and Electric stoves. See what I said!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is some honor between both seller and consumer!!!!! We not abuse and they not jack prices!!!!!!
Just for trivia; to suck the the sewage?? When I first met the people, I see the dumper/sucker at the dock. I ask: "What you charge to suck out the holding tank"? The guy look at me as I was crazy and say; "We never charged anyone".
Bunch of great people but not just anyone have a dock! You have to build some type of integrity. How, I not know because that be cheating!
Dang!!!!! I guess I not answer the question, but, I sure not want to mess that up. Maybe look on your charts for free ancorage, all I will say. I sorry, not want to mess up a good thing, sorry!
