Re: Minimum Depth For Slip?

SBS,

I am going by the printed tide table booklet that i picked up at my marina.

Is there an online source i can go to that might be more accurate for the current day, week, or month?

Re: Minimum Depth For Slip?

GD,

good point. thanks.

currently i have to clean bottoms every 3-4 weeks. i would just take a couple of 5 gallon buckets down there with me every month, and clear it around the keel.

I hope to purchase a new boat soon, and want to stay in my existing marina.

Re: Anyone living in a marina in San Diego Bay?

BV,

Thanks for your input.
I have looked at the CV Marina, but it is definitely a little far South for me.
