Oh, I understand. Will you lose too much financially by having the boat and paying the slip fees
over the many months before you can cruise
away? I doubt if anyone other than you will have the information to answer this. Will you get to the boat often for working on it and using it? Can you store it cheaply on the hard
? If it's at a private dock
, can you make a time remianing at the former owner's dock
part of the deal? .......I would think that, of these choices, finding a place to store the boat dry in a boat yard might be the least expensive.
