Well, I need to move my boat
ASAP from where it is. The marina has lost
its marbles. Aside from all the other absolutely crazy rules they started putting in under new management, you are only allowed to have one bicycle aboard your boat
and it must be registered and have a registration
tag affixed to the handlebars. You aren’t allowed to work
on your bicycle, but it must always be in good running order. Bonkers! They have dozens of similar rules for your boat. You also can no longer work
on boats here or run generators, despite there being no electricity. My mind is blown.
So... I need to quickly build some new motor
mounts and get the boat to a normal marina. My boat cannot be insured yet since it isn’t complete. This may be a factor.
Can anyone suggest a marina on the east coast
that is really inexpensive that my boat can fit into? 50’ LOA
x 25’ beam.
I need the dock fees
to be at an absolute minimum because I have to pay to build out the boat too. A forum member
will be with me this winter working on the boat so it’s the 2 of us.
Anyone who has a private dock
and wants to charge some reasonable, almost marina rate would be great too. I’d take a river bank in still water
we lay a board across even. Anything will do.
The other forum member
would be staying in the boat while we build the interior
out. I’ll have a little RV that fits in a single
parking spot. It’s not about drinking or partying or having any fun. It’s about getting the boat to a level it can be brought up north in April/May. Getting the rig on, getting the interior
more complete. I actually don’t drink, smoke, do drugs or have any fun at all. Ha ha ha.
Can anyone help on this? I’m getting boxed into a corner here. It’s way too expensive to fit out the boat and pay for expensive marinas
. It’s not affordable at all for me to do that. I can’t afford that.
My plan was to just live aboard and finish things at anchor
but that plan was obliterated by my severe epoxy
allergy. I have managed to find new ways of doing the interior, but these require a dock since I’m extremely sensitive to any chemicals now and cannot sleep among them while they are letting off fumes of any kind at all.
So... anyone know of a marina that is really inexpensive (multiply the rate for 50ft and a catamaran) where I can go this winter to get things done?
No green cove springs, please. All other places considered.
PS: On the hard
is fine. In the water
is fine. Ideas about ways to do this at anchor
(and get water and still park the RV) are fine. Similar ideas about doing it in a mooring
field are fine. Power tools would be running but not much generator
time at all since 1500 watts solar
. Dock would be best.
