I hear ya' Chuckles, I too enjoy the community at my marina. Lots of good people to talk to, share stories with, glean ideas from, etc. The marina social events can be fun too.
I, like CD, will be at the same marina as my folks this year. That should add a whole new level of "community".

The one thing I don't like about my slip is that it is a private slip at a home, not a marina. I miss the community aspect of hanging out with other boat owners at the marina.
On the other hand - in winter with the leaves off the trees I can see my boat from my house (then drive 20 minutes around to the other side of the creek where the slip is). It is literally the closest possible slip I can fit my boat in legally.

Since we're in between boats, this is the first year since 1996, that we haven't shelled out thousands of dollars to East Passage Yachting Center. Summer slip with winter storage would otherwise have cost me nearly $6,500.00.
It included gated entry with very tight security, restaurant, heads, showers, laundry, ships store, on site boat services, 6 shore BBQ grills/tents and a swimming pool - which I never used. Why swim in chlorine with the ocean all around us, we live on an island for cripes-sake (g).
We do have several close sailing friends there though, with no shortage of sailing invites all summer long. For a refreshing change, we may just enjoy the old adage for a while - "The best sailing is done on other people's boats" . . . at least until I find another one.

|mstern||I will pay $1800 for this season (April-October) to keep my 23' sailboat at a slip. Nine years ago, the fee was $1200. I am on the cheap pier: unlimited water, but no electricity (forget about cable TV, phone or internet). I also pay about $800 for winter storage in the marina parking lot.|

|PBzeer||I wonder if I tell him, if he'll cut you out of the will and put me in?|

My slip is zero! YES, ZERO!!!
Want to know how? Get your dad to buy a boat. Put him in the same marina as you. Call the marina office and have them roll both bills into one (for ease of book keeping), with the payment address going to Pops.
Just shake your head and tell your dad boat slips have gotten really expensive when he starts swearing every month about his marina bill!!!! HEHEHE!
And THAT is how you can slip for free. Next thing is to figure out how to get him to make the boat payment... I am working on it....
