Questions for those with a slip.....

For those of us who have a slip for our boat, here are a few questions for y'all.... No real reason, just curious and finding something to do to kill time till spring.
1. Is you slip a single-boat slip or do you share the slip with one or more boats?
2. Do you put your boat bow-in or stern-in?
3. Re the question above, why?
4. Is your slip perpendicular to the main dock or is it an end/side tie?
5. What size is your slip?
6. How much extra room inside the slip do you have around your boat?
7. Does your slip come with water? Power? Pumpout station?
8. Do you pay for pumping out? How far from your slip to the pumpout?

1. Is your slip a single-boat slip or do you share the slip with one or more boats?

Share a slip with another (smaller boat).

2. Do you put your boat bow-in or stern-in?

Bow In.

3. Re the question above, why?

It's easier, boarding gate is on the starboard side, so we tie starboard side to the finger pier and prop walk pulls the stern to starboard.

4. Is your slip perpendicular to the main dock or is it an end/side tie?

Perpendicular and only 16' from the ramp.

5. What size is your slip?

50'

6. How much extra room inside the slip do you have around your boat?

Not much. Marina staff moved a smaller boat next to us to accommodate my 16+' beam.

7. Does your slip come with water? Power? Pumpout station?

Yes, water, 50 Amp power, slip-side pumpout.

8. Do you pay for pumping out? How far from your slip to the pumpout?

Yes, it is $5. A bargain and I don't even have to be on the boat. The staff pumps the boat out while it is in the slip.


I just noticed that you had a Sea Ray. We temporarily had a new 50' Sea Ray sharing our slip and there was barely room for fenders between the boats.

Shared with one other boat

Stern in.
3. Re the question above, why?
I don't know, but since I have to make something up, it protects inflatable from weather and theft.

Perpendicular.
5. What size is your slip?
44' Covered
6. How much extra room inside the slip do you have around your boat?
When snug to the dock, there is about 4 feet between me and the other boat.
7. Does your slip come with water? Power? Pumpout station?
Water, power and pumpout station.
8. Do you pay for pumping out? How far from your slip to the pumpout?
Yes, we pay for in-slip pumpout. If we use the pumpout station, it's on a parallel fairway on the other side of the dock.

1. Is you slip a single-boat slip or do you share the slip with one or more boats?
Shared with a smaller boat.

2. Do you put your boat bow-in or stern-in?
We switch it up seasonally.

3. Re the question above, why?
Bow in is quicker (starboard side tie), and our salon door is on the starboard side.
Stern in- usually during the winter, as it's easier to simple exit the aft cabin thru the door, and setup onto the pier.


4. Is your slip perpendicular to the main dock or is it an end/side tie?
Perpendicular.

5. What size is your slip?
55'

6. How much extra room inside the slip do you have around your boat?
About 3' between boats.

7. Does your slip come with water? Power? Pumpout station?
Water yes, power flat fee, pumpout no.

8. Do you pay for pumping out? How far from your slip to the pumpout?
They come to me

[QUOTE="GFC;193016"]For those of us who have a slip for our boat, here are a few questions for y'all.... No real reason, just curious and finding something to do to kill time till spring.

1. Is you slip a single-boat slip or do you share the slip with one or more boats?

Single slip

Prefer bow in if windy

4. Is your slip perpendicular to the main dock or is it an end/side tie?

Perp

5. What size is your slip?

50' covered

2ft each side

7. Does your slip come with water? Power? Pumpout station?

1. Is you slip a single-boat slip or do you share the slip with one or more boats? End tie shared with one other boat.
2. Do you put your boat bow-in or stern-in? Not really applicable, but usually I angle the bow in for a starboard tie.
3. Re the question above, why? So I can just lean out from the starboard lower helm and grab a midship line I leave tied to the dock.
4. Is your slip perpendicular to the main dock or is it an end/side tie? T-end of a long main dock.
5. What size is your slip? I pay for 60' (for the view). According to the slip map I'm allowed a beam of 35'!
6. How much extra room inside the slip do you have around your boat? Plenty of room fore and aft. I would guess I have about 500' abeam of me to the other side of the ship canal...but lots of big boats, bridges and floating bridge sections tend to use that bit.
7. Does your slip come with water? Power? Pumpout station? Yes, Yes (100 KWH flat rate, then metered) and No.
8. Do you pay for pumping out? How far from your slip to the pumpout? Typically I use the free pump out at Fisherman's Terminal, maybe 1/4 mile away. It's an easy tie-up and usually vacant. I have occasionally hailed one of the passing pump-out boats ($20-25) but I prefer being able to do a couple of rinses when I do it myself.
