Aha! new world - - For your circumstance you want to find a "co-op" sailing club. There are many scattered around. It is a group of folks who cannot afford the cost and slip rentals and cannot sell the boat, so they put it into the "co-op" club and lease/rent it out to other members who do not have a boat. The rental helps cover the costs while you are trying to sell the boat or whatever.

of the Florida
Sailing and Charter
Club out of Miami
(now out of St, Pete with a new name "American Sailing Club" for a dozen years. It worked out great as I was able to "rent" boats for a weekend or week at half or less of the price
of a "new" boat commercial
