Re: Sticker Shock

That boat occupies a lot of space for the little internal space of the boat. Does that surprise you?

Pier ends (where large/wide boats can berth) are fully occupied here even though there's 50-percent vacancy otherwise in Vallejo.

Re: Sticker Shock

It doesn't surprise me as much as it saddens me ! Yes it is impractical and that is why I am sure some sort of solution of trailerable tris will come into play. Had three replies from boat facilities like Indian, Glades, etc who can't haul out a 23 foot wide beam. I want to cry.

If you want to haul and dry store the boat try The Catamaran Boatyard in Key Largo or Belle Hatchee Marina in La Belle.

Re: Sticker Shock

Some folks think Pensacola is not really in Florida, more like Alabama, but they can haul 24'11' beam.

LOL. Even the locals refer to it as "L.A.", for Lower Alabama.

P-cola Shipyard is a decent place. And the area is a great mix of southern Gulf Coast culture.

Re: Sticker Shock

Nature of the beast. You are competing with much larger more expensive boats for limited slip space. This is why many of the smaller tris use folding mechanisms and for cruising under 40' length, cats are drastically more popular.

While I don't like them for long term a mooring rental is probably the only option that will meet your definition of reasonably priced.
