I am curious as to what if any fees there may be with a mooring, slip or dock in your area(s). Currently staring down the barrel of $6080 for six months in a 40' slip in my neck of the woods with and additional $1512 for winter storage that includes haul out and pressure wash...Said another way $152 per foot for the slip(min paid for designated footage) and another$42 per foot outdoor storage...That's just a shade under $7,600 annually or $632.66 a month before turning the key !

$3150 for the slip and $1260 for haul-out, blocking and storage.

It's amazing what some places charge both high and low. A buddy of mine in a Boston yacht club pays $650 for dockage.

We pay $5400 for a 40 foot slip for the season May 1 to November 1. Winter dry storage is $37 a foot and winter wet is $800 in the same slip plus electric. A town mooring in the harbor is $500 for the year, if you don't mind waiting on a 20 year waiting list.

$3600/year for 12 months slip rent for a local charter boat, so $300/month but we have to rent it for the year. Pay up front and it's $3300/yr. Not based on size under that plan. Private boats pay by the foot at varying rates depending on duration of stay. I have to run 40 miles each way to haul out the DMR and pay separately for all that fun- haul, block, launch, days ashore, electric, and so on. Then I get to drive over an hour each way to get to that yard when we're on the hill, so think about that when you're bummed out about the high rent in OC. There's a yard nearby here that can haul most of the local boats, but they can't do mine or the really big sport boats. They could haul mine if they had some longer straps...

not many moorings in NH without at least a 10 year wait. Last I knew, Rye was up to a 23 year wait. Should've put my name in back in '87...

so its 4000sh for 32' slip plus i think it was 500 or so for winter storage. i think last year with shrink wrap i was over 5k...

CT seems to average about $90 - $100 per foot. Some places are cheaper for obvious reasons. I just saw a mooring for up to 40' with 4 1/2' M.L.W. on the Mystic River advertised for $1550 for the season including showers and head.

Depends on location in the salt pond but it goes from 115 to 150 a foot. Electric is either metered or not depending on where you are.

$810 for 28' well May 1st through Nov 1st at my local city owned municipal marina. Another $800 for outdoor winter storage at a private marina. This is in the Detroit area. I live in Grosse Pointe which is a suburb of Detroit. If I had to rent a well at a private marina I'd pay 1000-1800 for the summer depending on the amenities I wanted.

After reviewing others fees

Comparatively speaking I'm starting to feel like Marsellus Wallace when he and Butch Coolidge were tied up in the basement of the pawn shop...

Except he got even. You are just going to get F'd for the rest of your boating life.

I would have had to pay $6k for a slip and $60 per foot for winter but got my mooring at the local boat club. $650 for the year :)

Oh and a 16' slip for $267 for the season.

Dockage/mooring

I don't do a slip, but on the cape it can run about 8K seasonally for slip for a 36 footer and about 2150 for a mooring. Storage is about 55/foot, but lots of extras if you want shrink-wrap, etc.

Ocean City MD. 36 footer has to go in a 40' so you pay for all 40 feet. Now if it can squeeze into a 30 foot slip you pay for 36' @$152 per foot. There are a few other marinas in town that may be less $$ but they do not have the travel lift for haul outs.

Where's your slip? Sunset? If so, that's a long way from the pawn shop.
