Re: CT Shore Marinas

+1 each on JimR and Killarney's posts. Distance to the sound is important. However, so is driving time to the boat, both for convenience each weekend and on the few days per season when weather is threatening and you want to get to the boat quickly to secure something. I keep my boat at Island Cove Marina at Ferry Point in Old Saybrook - easy access from Rte 9 with a relatively short trip to the sound once you're on the boat ~45 mins to an hour depending on the tide and the railroad bridge opening. It's clean, the staff is wonderful and a mooring is $1500 for the season. Another similar option directly across the river from Island Cove is Old Lyme Marina, also a nice place and the mooring field has some of the best protection on the river.

Spicers in Noank is a little longer drive from W. Hartford, but it has direct access to the LI Sound and Fishers Island Sound, not to mention its proximity to Abbott's Lobster in the Rough!
