advice slip cost

The slip cost keeps going up in California and is around 500 for a 30 ft boat. Then there are other expenses.



I wonder what people are doing if anything to share the boat cost ?


Not partnership since don't want share boat ownership.


Thanks

NO advice ??????


Is everyone so rich they dont have a problem ?


There should be people who love sailing and have creative ways to pay the
expenses associated on a fixed income !!!!

Move to another state?

What kind of advice do you want? I donít know from your message whether you want advice on how to make extra income or get other people to pay your slip fee.

Perhaps downgrade to a mooring or find a marina which is less convenient or has fewer amenities therefore should be cheaper. Iíve been living on a fixed income for six years, I just spend my childrenís inheritance freely, I earned it.

I pay just under 1k for a 50' in Ventura county, and 215.00 for a 36 in the Delta. There are options.

Humm...

That's only $16.67/foot which isn't bad/actually pretty good for Calif. On the other hand, Texas is less costly (for EVERYTHING!).

Not to be flippant - but something like this may be the answer. The real estate mantra (Location, location, location) plays a big role in the cost of the slip.

By way of examples, we are in the PNW, Puget Sound across from Seattle. We are at $500 for a 42' vessel which includes electricity. Last winter in Petersburg, AK, it was @ 1/2 that cost.

Hope you can find one that suits your needs.

Re: advice slip cost

There are moorings for cheaper costs in San Diego, though waiting list for best locations may be lengthy. Hear slips in south San Diego Harbor are cheaper, Less prime areas like commercial harbor area in LA Harbor sometimes have cheaper rates though the powers that be seem to be closing down these cheaper locations. Don't know the cost but moorings can be bought in Newport Beach. Long Beach Marina used to be cheap because it was partially funded by oil money though waiting list was long.

SF Bay has cheaper rates than SoCal. Was paying $8 a foot in Alameda a couple years ago and supposedly cheaper the farther away from the bridges you get. The Delta is much cheaper but sailing is limited, a long way to the Bay and it's HOT in the summer and COLD in the winter.

Santa Cruz Marina has a long waiting list and hear getting a slip in Monterey is something that has to be willed to you by a rich Uncle. Same goes for Santa Barbara though I hear you can buy a slip for 6 figures.. Ventura and Channel Islands may be a deal.

I've got a slip in Oceanside for my 29' boat at $415 a month which didn't take long to get. Unfortunately bigger slips have a long waiting list at $14.30 a foot of boat length.

Then there is a trailerable boat if your subdivision reg's will allow you to store the boat at your home. A Hobie 33 is a really hot boat that you can haul around.
