Hmmm;

Thought NC and SC were North Carolina and South Carolina. Didn't know it was Southern California and Northern California.

My Bad!

That happens often. A person asks a question to a global group but does not provide adequate information. Location is often not disclosed or it is confusing.

Sorry to hijack your thread. A bad remark got the best of me. I would say, though, that unfair marina practices are fairly universal regardless of where you are. If the east coast marinas are more fair about multihulls, I would like to know about it. Might affect my next transfer request

I always though Norther & Southern California were abbreviated NoCal & SoCal.
Of course, when the Cascadians* finally annex NoCal, we can lose the distinction & just use Ca or Cal.

Since we are off on another tangent...
California is "The West Coast". Washington is "The Pacific North West" and Oregon... Well, that's just Oregon

Cascadia

Go back to Gord's post.
When we annex Northern California ( we do not want the South ) and link Oregon Washington BC Alberta and Alaska we will have Cascadia and hopefully live happy ever after. We are not sure what to do with the SoCal residents who have moved North. I know they can drive the OR folks nuts.
By we I mean us Westerners, we have already taken over the Canadian Government, we are on a roll.

I think that would be a very good idea!!

Combine all that states up with BC and other Candian territories and make a new country. Excellant!!

Since we are off topic :

Up here in Minnesota we thought that we and the rest of the "blue states" could secede and join with Canada and become The United States of Canada. The rest of the "red states" would simply become Jesusland.

Now we can sing the lumberjack song?

I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK
I sleep all night and I work all day.

Chorus:
He's a lumberjack and he's OK
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees, I eat my lunch
I go to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays I go shopping and have buttered scones for tea

Mounties:
He cut down trees, he eat his lunch
He go to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays he go shopping and has buttered scones for tea.

Chorus:
He's a lumberjack and he's OK
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

Gosh!! You just gotta love Monty Python's Flying Circus!!

Well, from the original query, New Bern is in North Carolina. Great place, Docked my boat there the whole of last summer, will head back there for hurricane season. Lived in Southern California for 30 years or so, I can't remember a New Bern.

I think there may be a pricing differential between the east coast and west coast of America. 2500 miles is a long way, no reason not to be different.

Having owned a catamaran I am very attuned to an notice price differential that affect me. I have only seen it in haul out pricing so far, no differential in marina fees. Availability is a completely seperate issue. There tend to be fewer slips that can accomodate a 22 foot beam. Definately affects availability. Indeed, there are a couple of marines in the Oriental area (North Carolina, Neuse river) that I can't even fit into because the creek channel is too narrow.

Cheers

Dudley's marina in Swansboro North Carolina does not charge any differently for Catamarans.

Our cat is 42 x 21, and we have put in at most all the places that Strygaldwir has, with no additional charge for our beam. A great place for leaving a cat, although it is farther south than you specified, is Brunswick Landing Marina in Brunswick, GA.

Also, you didn't mention if you were looking for transient dockage or long-term storage. Might make a difference, but the original post was 3 months ago, so I'm going to guess that you have already found a spot by now.

Harriet,

You're right about Brunswick Landing. Used to be one of the best spots on the waterway. Good solid floating docks. A friend of mine left his Leopard 43 there this spring and they don't charge any more for a cat. Their rates did go up this year so they're no longer the bargain they used to be. Their monthly rate used to be really good - the equivalent of five nights if I recall right and no charge for the washers and dryers!

I haven't been charged more for my cat than for a monohull either.
