Oh the horror of being able to afford a slipped boat.
We already had a fee increase this year. At least it was only about 20 bucks! Haven't heard about another increase....yet!
We pay the PP tax on the ground under alsne thing good and bad about LB is since 1984 I have not talked to anyone that has been able to be moved to the top.They are sometimes stupid strict.The wind was blowing from my stern one day and got a call I was sticking out of my slip too far.Tom
Im in Alametos by the launch no raise here yet.
My experience with marinas in san diego and newport has been that the tenant pays slip length or LOA, whichever is greater.
Dana has the kicker of property taxes for storage location.
Make sure you check the contract they sent to you to sign. My boat measures 24' 6" (hence it fits in the 21' slip in Dana Point). The contract they sent me had my boat at 26'.
I showed them prior documents from DANA POINT MARINA CO showing my boat at 24' 6". They don't believe it and are now telling me I need to go down and watch them measure.
Check the length they assess you at.
You got lucky they allowed you in the 21 ft slip, since technically you measured 6 inches over the 3 ft allowance.
Remember they are measuring from the tip of your anchor over hang, to the tip of your engines out of the water.
Agreed - when I brought the boat down they put me in a 21' after measuring saying I fit.
I realize where the measurement is from. I don't have a pulpit on mine from the tip of the bow rail to the back of the engine with it trimmed it's 24' 6".
Doesn't change the message that they tried to over charge me and you should look at your contract before just signing it.
So I am getting charged another 4 ft for trimming my outboards up. Do the boaters with 4 ft wide dingies behind their boats in the slip having to pay for their dingy or is that free?
Word from the old manager is that there will be no more dingy’s allowed behind boats. We will see if that happens, as that will affect a ton of boats. I also heard the new management will no longer allow anything stored on the dock or hanging over the front of the slip (kayaks, SUP, etc..)
San Diego needs to build more slips. I was told at Seaforth they are remodeling their docks so maybe slips have got harder $$ to locate ?
My contract with dana east was for a 25 ft slip , and letting me be as long as 28'4" for $372 a month. New mgmt. Now wants me to pay $416.64 for the same slip , charging me for every 1/2 ft over 25
The marina is flooded with re-measure requests right now. I know two guys on my dock had them measure their boat again yesterday. Both got their slip rate reduced due to a bad original measurements. They require you be there when they do the new measurement and they will give you a 2-3 hour window of when they will be there.
Went to the office on Saturday. They confirmed they have several measurements on my boat from the past and that it fits into a 21' slip. They apologized said the measuring has been a mess and most have been off. They are remeasuring Tuesday.
They asked if I had a Dingy in my slip (Which I don't) - they noted they are adding those to the cost of the slip.
I can't stress enough check your contract. Someone on my dock had 30'6" listed and their boat remeasured at 28'. Pretty big difference.
