Make SURE that you consider ANY other options before even consider living at Tantallon! (Anchoring at Belle Haven wouldn't be too bad) I was there for a bit, and couldn't get out fast enough ;( I have never seen a marina that is so poorly run and combative with their tenants. You pay yacht club prices for trailer park living.
I'm still trying to figure out what the liveaboard
fee supposedly covers, since there are no amenities (I second the advice to read the lease carefully, the one bathroom in "the bathhouse" is only for tenents that do not have facilities on their boat?!), and she (the evil witch that runs that place with her iron first) nickels and dimes you for EVERYTHING! (More like dimes and quarters you
by the time you pay for all the surcharges and whatever she's charging
for pumpouts and laundry
at this point, you can live very nicely somewhere else...
Just make sure you take a GOOD look first. I moved in without having met the manager (Rhonda) or having looked closely enough at the lease ;( big mistake! Life has been great ever since I pulled out from there...
