I think that's a stretch. A big stretch. Charging by the foot is just easier.

Re: Brunswick Landing Marina Huuuge Rate Increase

I was, of course, not serious about an 8x factor for cost ; just countering the claims made here that there shouldn't be a bigger charge for a longer boat on the same dock.

Re: Brunswick Landing Marina Huuuge Rate Increase

Hey Brunswick Landing Marina is not cheap by local standards but it is well built (no signifiant Hurricane Matthew effects) and this Spring had all you could drink free beer in the clubhouse, every day! Just saying'.

You get what you pay for.

Re: Brunswick Landing Marina Huuuge Rate Increase

I stayed there a few days last month. The price seemed good and better than others I stayed at along the way south. And the free beer and nice clubhouse was a plus.

If only you could control the wind direction to keep the paper plant odor away!
