Marina For Sale

The marina I have been in for 7 years is up for sale. The yard manage (who is a good friend) is leaving when it sells.
Looks like it may be time for me to make some decisions at the end of the season.

It's gonna be a goooood year

you never know what happens after a sale... I had the same slip for 30 years... 3 years ago that marina was sold... the price went up steadily each season.. he added a water side pub... parking at night became a nightmare.... he let the marina go to the point that a lot of people have left... complaints about break ins and other problems ( especially parking) fell on deaf ears ... it was just like "good fellas" "bleep you pay me"... I moved to a new marina this season myself... back at the place where I started in 1972...things sure have changed a bit: tooth:... I'm looking foreword to the upcoming season... I paid in full back in November and he knocked off $5 a foot... recently he sent me a fishing calendar made with pictures from our area and a $25 gas card ( for their fuel dock) as a welcome gift... 30 years at the same place and all I ever got was fish carcasses and sea gull poop in my boat! ...Good luck ..I hope it works out for you...

A good run is better than a bad stand!

Mike, I just don't see the sense of splashing and letting it sit. I'm ready to go with a couple of minor things to do on the trailer but I'm waiting until we get a few days straight above 65.

It's gonna be a goooood year

Mike, terrible marina. Porta potty for a bathroom. Docks are falling apart.
I'm staying put for this year. Who knows next year. We will be in SC from Dec to April next year. I may sell the boat and the house here and move permanently to SC. Boats are less than half the cost there. Weather is beautiful there and I have had it with sh*$ty Springs here.

It's gonna be a goooood year

Try obtaining a mooring in Newport.

You'd be looking at a 16 year waiting list.

I think the fort wetherall boat slips are something like 30 years to get one and it's only for Jamestown residents.

I'd say at the least 7-8 guys in our club have slips at ft. Wetherell. That's our post-tourney beers/grilling spot. Not a bad gig...

I had my boat at conanicut for a couple years and liked it. Pretty reasonable and was in a good spot.
