South Shore Marina is cheapest. It is affiliated with Orleans Marina, where my boat lives. Orleans Marina is better protected. Both marinas require salvage
and removal insurance
. For my Cal
2-27 I think I pay $337/year or something like that. There are yards all over the place, but I have never hauled my boat out so can't comment.
Nobody anchors out in the lake. I don't think it is illegal, but really... my 35' slip with 50A shore power
available and free water
costs me $565 a quarter. There was a long waiting list but now there are often slips to be had. How big is your boat? I am pretty sure Orleans Marina can only accomodate up to about 60' in the marina proper but the levee district, which owns the marinas, has other docking
available for larger vessels.
Up on the North Shore there are slips available in Madisonville and Slidell.
"Orleans Marina" and get the phone
number. I am in Bahrain right now. Anyway call and ask for Miss Helaine. Tell her Robinson said "HI see you in March!" and recommended you call her. She is a perfect angel and a good troubleshooter for navigating through the red tape
with the Levee District, Entergy, etc. The harbormaster is not the guy to talk to. He lives to complicate other people's lives, I think. SHE is the one who really runs the show and she loves to help people.
