Re: cruising costs in Europe
This is interesting, as I was under the impression that dockage in the Med was spendy. Maybe just the tourist traps, which is the case everywhere.
If I'm not mistaken, Monitor makes a kit that allows you to swing it out of the way or more easily remove it. I'm not sure how you'd get off the boat, if you med moored bow first. I doubt anyone would allow it either.
I assume the dockage Chuck is referring to is Med Moor type. Back up to and tie the stern to a bulkhead, with your anchor set to hold your bow in position. The boats to your port and starboard are a few feet away. Lots of fenders! You typically need some sort of passerelle to reach the shore.
