And yup expensive though you could bounce around different Marina's in the smaller towns easily

Lund, Powell River, cambell river, comox port Hardy all leave you close to the best cruising areas of the pnw

SNIP
Minor correction.

It is only Gorgeous upstream of the Sandy River (and lower than Hood River).

Below the Sandy it is beautiful.

Re: Marina BC or Oregon

I'm at Canoe Cove, near Sidney BC, initially for the same reason, Washington's Use Tax. Now I'm there because I like it! There are 4-5 nice marinas in this area, google them. Not a lot of vacancies though. In Sidney you have access to the Ferry to Anacortes, WA, Blackball Ferry to Port Angeles and the BC ferry at Swartz Bay. Stunningly beautiful area. Prices are similar in US $ to Washington marinas away from the expensive urban areas. You can stay in Canada up to a year, drop down to the US for a day and go right back to BC for another year. There are lots of marinas in Nanaimo also, about an hours drive north of Sidney. What is best for you depends on how long you want to stay and what you want to do once you get here. Lots more cruising destinations in BC than in Oregon.

Re: Marina BC or Oregon

Oddly enough (if you are not looking for liveaboard) this came up today at some friends' marina on Gabriola Island: https://www.kijiji.ca/v-other-boat-w...tm_content=vip

Go to Oregon to Winchester. The Marina is inexpensive and very nice called Salmon Harbor.

Re: Marina BC or Oregon

There are some cheap options on Vancouver island. Lowest I know of was about 150$/month in the winter season with a 15A unrestricted shore power hookup for a 44'. Windy though.

On land I charge 150$/mo storage for something that size, 200$ for DIY use with access to some shop facilities(shower/laundry etc). power is metered and charged at cost.

Re: Marina BC or Oregon

I've talked to the Washington State Department of Revenue, there is no way to avoid the use tax, CarinaPDX is correct. You can delay it if your vessel is going under repairs, or you purchase the temporary recreational permits, but eventually you either have to remove the boat from Washington waters or pay the use tax, minus what sales tax you paid when you bought the boat.

Re: Marina BC or Oregon

Ladysmith, Maple Bay and Cowichan Bay are all reasonable in price, and are minutes from southern gulf island anchorages. Sidney is really nice but quite a bit more money.

Re: Marina BC or Oregon

Buy a Waggoners Guide if you can get one where you are. Covers the entire WA BC AL coast. Used to be online, but no more. Dumb marketing strategy by the new owners.

Re: Marina BC or Oregon

It may be farther north than you desire, but Petersburg, Alaska is very inexpensive and has a great harbor staff. Small town, but good access by air to go to BC or WA

Hayden island could be a real problem by mid summer when you draw8. Otherwise it is great.

Astoria is nice enough but there again, you need to pay attention to depth.

No experience with Newport.
