My 4th daughter was supposed to go there.

She slacked off and missed the date for her required paperwork.

Ended up at Stetson. Then Monmouth in Jersey.

She now works in our business and makes more than me at 25.

Ouch! Expensive schools, but very good. I went to Rollins which is Stetsons counter part in Winter Park.

My Dad graduated from Rollins (early 50's I'm guessing). We both went to Winter Park High School but he went to the old, old school (mine was just the old one... ).

I think this is another east coast vs west coast thing. At least here in CA, like Gwiki said, you are charged for the longer of the two, the boat or the slip. I have never been to a marina that will let you use a slip more than 2' shorter than your boat (e.g. 40' slip you cannot be more than 42' overall, anchor to swimstep). Slips here have fingers the full length of the slip.

It is dangerous to have your boat stick into the fairway at our present marina. the current is very strong and it is a weekly occurance for someone to end up laid out against the end of the fingers. the guy on the end tie next to us is hit on a regular basis.

Different marinas charge different rates ....some by slip length, some by tip to tip...some by whatever you tell them...

Some charge by slip in the summer and tip to tip for winter storage....

Some change from transient daily to different rates for weekly based on different criteria...

To say marinas ONLY charge one way I think is incorrect...because I have receipts that can show otherwise...

My last 2000 mile cruise on the AICW and decades of delivery jobs...just about all marinas for overnight transient fees just ask "how big are you?" and pretty much go with what you tell them as long as it's reasonable.

Class of '66. Winter Park is still one of my favorite places. You were indeed fortunate to grow up in that community. I believe that Rollins used the "old-old" elementary school on Park Ave for some offices before razing the building. What a lovely place. I couldn't afford to live there when I graduated, and probably couldn't now.

I went with our youngest to check out Rollins. She decided on Florida Southern.

Ah great points Scott. My post was in reference to the common practice with monthly rates in this area. We don't have winter storage here. Transient rates here are also based on the length of the boat-what you tell them, never seen anyone come out and measure. And absolutely it sounds like "it depends" on the marina, though I've found the Bay Area and CA delta consistent.
