Due to unexpected change in plans (long story for another time….) I’m thinking very seriously of sailing my boat down to the Norfolk area to store it for the winter in the water. I’m really tired of all the dismantling and extreme winterizing that’s required here in Maine and I’d also like to extend my sailing season. So, I wonder if those of you who are very familiar with this area could guide me in choosing a marina? I do plan to spend time aboard over the winter though I would not be a full time liveaboard. I’d plan to do a quick haul-out for bottom paint and zincs in the spring, then depart for Maine in late April to take full advantage of the sailing season here. Just looking online. couple of marinas that look interesting to me are both in Portsmouth, Tidewater and Ocean Yacht Marina. I probably won’t have a car so would like to be able to walk to grocery store and pub(s) and possibly places of cultural interest. And of course I hope the marina staff are nice people. So, do any of you who are familiar with these two or other area marinas have any good advice for me about which marina would best suit my plans?
