In my cruising experience I have found that dockage is but ONE item of expense, I dont think that I need list them all, and not to mention that lots of shoreside activities on the Gulf ICW are less expensive or NON existant. For one, I have never encountered a charge to dock my dingy for a few minutes on the Gulf ICW, the notable exception being Key West !
Just my experience and as always YMMV
