There is another option for some. It's Capital Yacht Club, next door to the Gangplank. You have to join with a healthy initiation fee and with two members to sponsor
you. It's cost-effective if you stay more than 2-3 years.
A permanent slip assignment for a 42 footer could take 1-2 years, but in the interim they do their best to accommodate new members by moving them around. Sort of like musical chairs. Occasionally, you have to get your boat out of the marina (like to anchor
just off the docks) until you can come back.
Also, if it's a power boat
, you might get a slip at Washington Marina, near CYC and Gangplank.
That's about it, I'm afraid.
