Start checking Craigslist for something behind someone's house/office
Or use Garmin
Activecaptain map to lookup marinas
is super expensive
I'd worry about tax implications. CT probably wont work
because of that. There are some private marinas
between South Amboy and Atlantic Highlands NJ that might be willing to negotiate.
Most moorings are $50/night so thats about $4,500. Perhaps you can work
a deal with someone for 90 nights. There are some people that own a lot of moorings or operate a launch service
. Heck, in some towns a mooring permit
might only be a couple hundred bucks and the mooring
$1,500 or so you could possibly buy one and then sell it on craigslist after you are done?
The cheapest transient dock
I know of is $2/foot/night so $9,000 for 50 feet for 90 nights. Some will offer weekly or monthly discounts though.
I'd avoid wasting time with anyone that has been bought out, i.e. Safe Harbor/Brewers marinas, find a marina that is privately owned and try negotiating a deal. I think you might be able to find a slip for $1,500/month on the south shore of long island
or something in a less than desirable spot, i.e. freeport
. Problem is 50 feet is pretty big and a lot of marinas are geared towards smaller boats.
I'd be nervous leaving my boat unattended that long. I'd want security
cameras, some way to know electric
is working, batteries
topped off, no water
getting in. That might mean finding a place where someone can keep an eye on your boat / respond if there is an emergency
? How far would you be? I'd be real nervous leaving my boat on a mooring for 90 days straight!
