I believe that. Was this summer on business. Only had sun one day for every three of rain.

Not worried. I plan to bring my own electricity. The stuff over there doesn't work right.

I wonder what you are going to keep it in on the trip over.
Our electric works fine just as long as you don't connect yourself to the circuit....then you'll be dead quick as I can say it..

I plan to dehydrate some American electricity and store it in a dry box. Then when I get to Europe just take out a handful, add water and Bob's your uncle.

Good advice. I have connected myself to a circuit before and didn't like it too much. Fortunately I'm still alive. At least I think I am.

I must apologise, I somehow missed your two posts on the thread and for some reason also did not get any reminders of new posts. If ok with you I will definitely get back to you on the "where to anchor". I have noted your post on Coconut Grove, tks.

We will probably need a safe anchorage for about 3 weeks this December - January that won't cost us a boat in fees lol.

Make sure you add twice as much water cause our electric is 230v not 110v like yours




Good advice. I have connected myself to a circuit before and didn't like it too much. Fortunately I'm still alive. At least I think I am.
Yeah if you connect yourself to one of our circuits you really have to watch it as 230v is powerful so just be careful when you add the water and don't forget salt water conducts much better than fresh.

Re: Mooring Fees

Google Active Captain and they map out virtually every marina in the USA (and many in other areas).

Big cities are typically expensive but outside them its' much more reasonable.

South Florida and the East Coast are generally the most expensive but even there you can find reasonable prices in the $1-1.50/ft range.

If you go up the hudson and cruise the Erie Canal, you have great historic locations and dockage including power and water are generally free (you do have to pay for a cruising permit. A couple years ago the annual permit was $75.)

On the great lakes, plan on $1/ft most places. Michigan has a series of high quality harbors that are generally $1/ft.

If you take the river system south from Chicago, you get to see a new side of the country (even for most Americans). Dockage is generally cheap.

If you stay for a week or a month, rates are often drastically cheaper. We frequently pay for a month and leave after a week or two because it's cheaper.

Thanks, I have been using Active Captain and I agree, it is a very useful tool for info about anchoring and marinas as well as a wealth of other info.
