I'm a Great Lakes
trailer sailor on a Capri
26. My wife and I do a 2 week trip every year and weekend day sails
. I'm retiring this year and we want to work into living on a 40 foot boat in a marina in Tampa area for 3-5 months in the winter. We will be going back and forth the first few years to attend grandkids activities and some business that will need to be taken care of. My question is 1.-am I better off renting
a slip and putting the boat on the hard
for the other 7 months, 2.- pay for a yearly contract
and leave the boat at a slip. What type of marina costs would I be looking at for the year.
