Covered fresh water for me please!

We have 4'x4' skylights between slips at my YC and that really helps with the gloom aspect.

With covered you also get posts and beams to rig things like hull protection and power lines.

I can certainly see open for a live aboard if your boat is water-tight.

I swore I would never go undercover until a couple years ago . I got covered slip because I needed to replace my caprail and make some new doors . I even kept my uncovered slip because I thought I would go back for sure . After a couple months I gave up the uncovered slip and don't think I'll ever go back . If you have some serious work to get done covered is the only way .

The Big "J" does not run in my blood. Honest affirmation for other's good fortune does. Tiz a beautiful pict Marin posted regarding his open slip dockage. Now, just think if that same panoramic view could be had off transom of a boat in covered slip! Best of both worlds... then I might feel just a pinch of the J - LOL

Covered is the way to go IMHO. Cooler when hanging around the boat at the dock for the weekend, easier on the boat/components as the shade keeps the sun away, not too mention the protection from the rain.

I had the same dilemma when I bought my boat, the GF insisted on the covered slip, I am so thankful she did!
