I talk to them: they take up to 25' boats. My IP26 actually 30' with bowsprit.

Not down that way. Farther North, yes (just south of Toms River), but I haven't really found anything too inexpensive down south. You might try Mariner's, but if you have a family, the lady at the desk suggested that the marina didn't have a lot of younger kids, and that the marina wasn't exactly "family friendly". We never went back to find out why not.

Want to resurrect old tread. Any recommendation on cheap slip for 26' sailboat in SNJ: Brigantine, Tuckerton, Little Egg Harbor area?

I took my ASA101 at the school at Cedar Creek Marina. I liked the location and it seemed like a friendly group. It would be an option if we ever want to move further north on the BB.

Tall Oaks is our ultimate destination; we're still waiting to get there due to technical difficulties early in the season that had us out of the water (in the Chesapeake) until 2 weeks ago.

I checked with Cedar Creek early this season, and they were full. Has that chnaged?

Thanks for the feedback on the Mullica!

Hope Tall Oaks is working for you.

We've been mulling over picking up a 30 to 35 ft monohull and keeping it on Barnegat. I love that bay!!!! Mariner's was an option and still may be. We found a small marina up the bay in Bayville with great bay access. The Cedar Creek Sailing Center. Cedar Creek Sailing Center Marina The prices are reasonable and the people friendly. And though is would seem to be further from our suburban Philadelphia home than Mariner's, it's not.

BTW, my Brother has his power boat at the marina at the Viking Plant. I kept my Boston Whaler across the Bass River at Allen's Dock in New Gretna. There are sailboats in the area. Actually, the Mullica is quite sailable in that, east of the parkway bridge it's wide and very deep. Deeper than any of the bays with soundings of 30 feet or more in some sections. In fact, when piloting my brother's SeaRay the navigation concern is exiting the river and entering the bay. How weird is that? That said, the water is clean clean clean and the area beautiful. And yes, with the wrong wind, it's definately buggy!!!!

Mariner's is a sailing marina right on the bay. A short ride through a channel and your sails up. I sail across to LoveLadies on LBI or north to Forked River.
Of course, this is a few month old thread so maybe I missed where you settled.
Hes going to Tall Oaks I think om BB.

Jim,
We don't have kids or grand kids to entertain so I sometimes lose track of their needs. The FR marinas do seem to have a lot more to offer for younger ones.
We chose Mariner's because of the location and view.
Glad to hear you settled on the BB. Will probably see you out sailing sometime.

Ward,
Thanks for the reply! When I visited Mariner's, the employees made it sound like it wasn't a particularly kid-friendly marina. I was disappointed, because the location was great for us. So, we wound up at Tall Oaks/Southwinds (forkedrivermarinas.com).
