Perhaps we could dig up that sludge from under our boats and send it back to them with a "No thank you" note...he he he

I feel very fortunate now. I pay $83 per month for my 40' slip which includes water and electricity. I guess I won't complain. Great little marina too. The neighbors on each side are live aboards and watch each others boats carefully. Once when I went to our boat in the evening driving my pickup instead of the normal van, one of the folks from the next dock came over to make sure of who was on my boat when I was not there Like I said, I great little marina. Very safe.

My berth in the marina costs about $US 115 per month. That includes access to water and power and use of the toilets & showers if required. The club facilities also include a slipway, 2 bars and a resaurant. Membership is about $130 per year. Funnily enough there is a long waiting list.

In St. Augustine, FL--the price per foot was $17. plus electric. The charge depended on live aboard or non live aboard status. Calbe TV and phoe was also extra. Florida also taxes the land under the water and just hope you do not find any treasure because the state will also claim it. According to a county ordinace, I can not remove any muck from the canal on which I live. So they effectively own te muck and will not dredge the canal unless the home owners pay for dredging. The City of St. Augustine is also going to put in moorings. Yes, St. Augustine will also charge for the moorings. That will take away all the anchoring areas away from the city.

I guess if you've never lived in a major city, the idea of paying for parking is a foreign one.

I essentially hear the same complaints from folks who live in Manhattan. "They think that because we own a car, we're rich!"

$575 mo. Thats $6900 a year. And I'm moaning about my $2400 a year slip and winter storage fees for just having a place to float fiberglass in water.

But what do the apartment rents go for in Marco? Probably $1500mo. You might be getting off cheap.

Ft. Meyers is probably cheaper, but not as nice.

It's double taxation I tell ya! The stuff under my boat is what I dropped over the side... but I already paid sales tax on it!

Hey the paying for parking in the city was a good one to pull it back to "real" for me.

Where is your marina?
I pay about $350 in Anacortes for 40' slip. The Monitor and bowsprit get me.

I too am curious what marina this is! Sounds too good to be true.

We pay $90 / month but that is for home owners association fees and includes the slips too. I pay the electric based on the meter water is free. Rates at our yacht club run about $1400 /year plus member dues of $395 / year.

The problem members in California have is far too many boats and far too few slips. Folks in New England have similar problems.

You need to leave the big city. Too many people is just bad for boating budgets.
