Yes thats where home is. Midland would not be to bad its just the cost of dockage. I know 1000 a year is nothing to some of you but for me with a 4000$ boat its alot. Also I really dont want to pull her in and out each time because Ill be sailing every week. Any ideas for a cheepy

If you don't mind the risk of damage or even total loss then go ahead and moor it there. I think it should be clear from every reply on the thread that the spot is not safe in any kind of weather.

If you live close by perhaps you could try to move the boat to a safe location when the weather forecast is bad.

There's a small municipal marina at the mouth of the Nottawasaga river. Not too far from you. It's used by locals rather than the folks who come up from the city. Mostly fishing boats but you'd be able to squeeze a 22 footer in there. Prices should be pretty cheap. The name escapes me but it shouldn't be hard to find.

Good luck!

I get it bad idea and thanks for the help. Anyone know if there is anywhere to just pay an anchorage fee no dock? Is that allowed?

On your other thread someone mentioned the two week rule which means it's like camping on crown land. You can anchor for 2 weeks at a time and then you have to find another spot. Maybe you can make that work for you?

Try Duthman's Cove in Penetanguishene, they have mooring balls, but not sure on cost. Or, try Midland Bay Sailing Club, thay have decent rates and you keep the cost down with volunteer hours. The location in your original pic gets hammered with waves many times during the season. Lots of room for waves to build and that section is not protected.
