Re: Water based anti-fouling in the Chesapeake
Sounds like a sweet arrangement, SO.
The economics at our marina are not quite as obvious. We paid approx $4,400 for winter storage on the hard, all inclusive of haul, wash bottom, stands and launch. In water would have cost $3,200 plus actual metered electricity and I don't know what that would be. I would still need to pay for a round trip in the travel lift for bottom paint, zinc, etc. No divers allowed. That's $540.
I don't think I can adequately describe the gull crap and broken clam shells on our dock over the winter. No way to walk around them, so you would be forced to track it aboard. Once we all occupied the docks again, they go elsewhere. However, these past few years, we've had mallards in the marina, during the summer. Cute but absolutely awful. You never want to walk to shore at night, without a flashlight. It looks like a pack of dogs crapped all over the dock.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
