|jrd22||dohenyboy- Anacortes is a great little town and they have six(?) nice marinas there. Some are private that you can buy a slip in or sublease. I think a 36' at Skyline is around 40-50K to purchase, or about 300-400/mo. The Port of Anacortes runs a big marina, our 30' slip for the crab boat runs a little over 200/mo. Electricity is $8/mo. Anacortes is the closest place to moor your boat to the San Juans. It's about a 1.5 hour drive from Seattle depending on traffic(little longer on Fri. evenings). There are marinas everywhere up here, depends on where you want to locate, if you want the boat close to home etc. Seattle area is the highest price like the others have said, but there are lot's of alternatives. Hope this helps, John|

An "interesting location" would be somewhere like Port Townsend, La Conner, Friday Harbor, even Olympia. We live south of Seattle and kept a boat in Friday Harbor for many years. Lots of great things about that but quite a few downsides too.
Tacoma has several marinas that have a small or no waiting list. About $7.50 per foot per month for my 34' boat. Have to add power on top of that. The new marina at the Glass Museum in Foss Waterway is very attractive, right downtown, and close to a lot of amenities.

|wfraser||Cheap! Here in the Tokyo/Yokohama area, a full service slip (water, elec.) for a 36 footer runs USD 12-16,000/year. Then add memberships fees, deposits when signing up and it can initially cost an owner 35-40k to park the boat. Needles to say, most do without the amenities and raft up on mooring lines like sardines, some thankful their 10 year wait has come to an end.|

|blt2ski||6 yr wait depends upon the length, but that is a good ave to find permanent moorage! Everett if under 32-34' is open most of the time if you can handle being back with the fishing boats!...........otherwise, plan on waiting, with your $ down, $ a yr to save your spot..............|

While there is not an income tax, there is a pretty bad sales/use tax, which they will hit you to the tune of about 9% when you registar your boat here! Everett at this time is one of the cheaper places to moor in the main tacoma north to seattle to everett. South to olympia is a bit better....... Other wise, figure 7-10 per foot or more per month depending upon where you want to be. for my 30'r, I have had quotes of 250 to 500 a month on Lake washington.
