Too late to get a slip in the AlaWai but get your name on the wait list there ASAP. If you are staying in the Navy
, your name may come up on your next tour at Pearl. Slips are a major problem. Wait list for medium size slips is at least 3 years and probably a couple of years longer, have been on the list for 3 years now. Strangely, larger slips appear to have a shorter wait time as I got offered a 45' slip after only a couple of years on the list. The State Marina at Keehi has a shorter waiting list but it's not the best environment
. There are also the moorings in Keehi Lagoon
that are State Controlled. Semi lived aboard at LaMarianna Sailing Club in Keehi when I was stationed there many years ago. The industrial nature of the area, drugs and crime, aren't condusive to peace and tranquility though I hear they've made an effort to clear out the druggies.
probably have slips available but they are way more costly. You are looking at over $10 a foot before any live aboard additions. Ko'olina Resort is by far the nicest though probably with a price
Don't know what the slip situation with the Waikiki and Hawaii
Yacht Club in the AlaWai. Might check with them to see if a live aboard slip is a possibility. Of course, you'd have to join the club and add the club fees
to your slip costs.
I'm on the Big Island so not intimately familiar with the goings on on Oahu.
