$134.00, which was inclusive of something called a recycling fee. Interesting also, since even when the boat WAS there, I had no recycling bin or anything like it. I think, and I don't have the bill...

I don't know what an ad velorum tax is. Personal property tax is, as you surmised, a tax levied on the assessed value, generally of big ticket items. On a percentage basis, it is generally higher...

Just so everyone knows, The Sheraton in New Bern is no longer a Sheraton. At the moment they are unaffiliated, but will be a Hilton shortly.

I guess no need for me to keep saying it- I've been there probably twenty times. Won't go back again. As I go up and down the ICW, Ches. Bay, and the tributaries, other boaters have always...

I agree with you. In other situations, it is "innocent until proven guilty", with the tax man it is "guilty until you can prove yourself innocent." BTW-one of my favorite scenes in any movie is in...

I stand corrected on the Southbound Cruisers Rally. I thought there was to be none in 2008. I don't know how many trips you have made to New Bern, I have made 20 or more, I have recommended it many...

This is a response to the quotes here, not just to Chris's comments.
As far as the Sheraton goes, note that while I was quoting their $120. rate for marina tie up, I was quoting Comfort Suite's...

The boat WAS there for 5 months in 2008. As far as the town not liking cruisers, it is pretty easy to see- The Sheraton Marina literally doubled its rates a couple of years ago, and raised minimum...

That's correct, the last statement I received from them is for 2009, not 2008, and I have not been there at all in 2009. What they appear to be trying to do is to simply carry the property forward...

Avoid New Bern

I'd just like to recommend to all ICW cruisers to avoid the side trip to New Bern, NC. The town has, collectively, become very expensive, and seems to be, with a few exceptions, making it abudantly...
