So OP should have a years experience. Maybe he can give me a few tips.

Considering that the OP has been in Presque Island Marina for over a year, your post really doesn't make much sense.

I have been sailing out of Erie Pa for over 30 years. I had a trailerable Macgregor 26D and spent many nights in Marina Lake or I would sail across Lake Erie and drop anchor at long point lighthouse in Canada. There are some small towns if you cross the bay further into Canada.
30 miles west in Conneat Ohio. You can drop anchor there, they have some small restraunts there. .
North East Pa is 15 miles East, I usually pull in after dark and tie off at the launch ramp overnight. 1 good restraunt.
Barcelonia New York is another 12 miles East, Its a protected entrance and you can stay at the dock for $10.00 a night. A few good restraunts within walking distance.
I keep my boat at BayHarbour East. the old cherry street marina. they have a few slips available in the 25`
Commodore Perry Yacht club is between BayHarbour East and BayHarbour West. Two years ago they extended the concrete wall and there is room to expand for a few hundred boats. .
Good Luck.. Hope to see you around.

I live in pittsburgh and have also been shopping for a marina in Erie. I am currently up to my ears in a restoration ( almost ready for paint! ) of a Grampian 26 I purchased in febuary. I am leaning toward Presque Isle also for both price and convenience but have been too busy to get up there and check it out. I don't think I will get her wet this year but i would like to have her in a marina yard by winter so she will be ready to go next season. I would like to hear from anyone who has experience with marinas in the area.

They don't offer off-season storage or lift-out, though--you have to use another boatyard that they recommend for that. I put a call into Presque Isle the other day to get some better pricing information, and I need to call them back this week. So things are still a little up in the air. I physically visited the Presque Isle marina several weeks ago, and it looks like a nice spot. I didn't do much investigation or talk to anyone while I was there, though. I think I'll still want to talk to someone who actually uses it before I commit to it, which is another reason why I've called them--I'm hoping to get some contacts of current users who might be willing to talk to me.
Even though Conneaut is less expensive and is about the same drive-time, I'm still seriously considering marinas in Erie. Erie has other benefits for us, since we have some family there and we're pretty familiar with the area.
On a similar topic, I'm also still investigating a few of the yacht clubs in Erie. Not having experience with such things, I'm still trying to figure out exactly what those costs might be.
If you get additional information, I'd be interested to hear from you. There are some other local sailing grounds that might be attractive to you (and to us, if we can't initially afford the boat and dockage in Erie). If you're interested in hearing me babble on about that sort of thing, PM me.

I just moved to pittsburgh and I'm looking for a marina too. Did you decide on Presque? How is it?

Thanks for the suggestions, folks. I'm seriously looking at the Presque Isle Marina. Now I just need to make the finances work to get the boat.
