Re: Parking a 50.. 48.. 44 footer...

From my experience of sailing up and down the east coast of Australia in a 45ft cat over the past 11 years, most marinas will find you a space at 50% more than a mono. Plan to use marinas for short stops, a few hours to a couple days, for refuelling, watering and shopping. If you're planning to stay longer, haggle. Otherwise organise a mooring or anchor out. The greater problem is finding a boatyard that has a wide enough lift or slipway. It's a problem everywhere except Queensland, which is multihull heaven!

The problem is if I'm not on board overnight I have no insurance unless I'm either in a marina berth or on a private jetty.

Looking for an alternative insurance company.

Since when do you park a boat?

When you put it on the hard (in a "boat park")

Which is not what the OP is talking about.

Hey Neko, where are you guys parked now?

For reference, just parked a Lagoon 38 on a T-head at Club de Pesca in Cartagena...no extra charge (charged $50/night). They do charge more in slips, $80 per night for this boat. A little bumpy there with all the boat traffic, but very close to the Old City so a choice spot.

Re: Parking a 50.. 48.. 44 footer...

Sadero I had to laugh at your last comment. Its not that I enjoy marina's per se, its more to do with seeing the place we've stopped at. Yes for sure we can anchor, and by the sounds of it, it looks like we'll have to do a lot of that up there; but its more to do with ease of getting on dry land to have a good look around, soak up the local culture, try local foods and drinks and not be too worried about getting back aboard to sleep.
