Re: Slip Fees

It's only reasonable that multihull boats pay more for berthage than similar length monohulls. It's simple. Larger boats should pay more than smaller boats. Don't expect smaller boats to subsidize larger boats.

Re: Slip Fees

But what about draught? What if marinas and the channels serving them have to be regularly dredged to suit the deep keelers? Should the shallow draught boats be subsidising the dredging to suit the deep draught boats?

Re: Slip Fees

By that logic if I show up in a very narrow boat I should only pay half price.

I'm almost always tied alongside. I'm renting the length of the dock I occupy, not the area of the water I float in.

I was not interested in rates nor any specific locations. My wife asked me if you pay for 2 slips if you have a cat and I told her since I did not know I would ask here. I have to admit I am surprised to learn in most marinas you do not have to.

There's your answer.

Some places you pay less for cats, since you can float in less water. My marina is power boats and multihulls for that reason. No mono over 20 feet can float.

So it depends.
