country to be only medium brackish or is it still semi-salty tidal country?
And how much do property taxes
run on boats in Contra Costa county? Is CC one of the more reasonable bay area counties or which county assessors in the area are more or less piratical to boat
We have been in Antioch since 1999. We currently have a 38' Searay in A dock
. As far as I know, the water
is fully fresh in Antioch - I believe that it is slightly brackish in Pittsburg, and 10% by the time you get to Benicia. The docks and the covers are kept in nice condition. The biggest problems are petty thievery and weeds. We have been broken into twice in the past three years. Nothing was taken the first time, but the last time, we lost
some of our liquor, some aspirin (at least they go together), a flare gun, and our boat
hook. The perps had been thieving for a few months between Bethel Island and Pittsburg, entering marinas
on a RIB
. They were caught a few weeks ago trying to remove a wakeboard tower off of a boat in broad daylight.
As someone else mentioned, property tax is 1.1% of assessed value. For the mud under my slip, we are paying about $100.
