RE: Dockage fees

I'm paying just over $800 per month (includes taxes and 1st 100 KWH) for my spot.* It is a 60' space and more than I need, but we chose it before we had even looked at a boat.* When we first had the sudden brainstorm to get a boat last March the first thing I did was go online looking for moorage.* I found the vacancy on an interactive slip map and, as I had passed by the area many times on my father-in-laws commercial trawler coming out of Fisherman's Terminal, I knew it would be a great place to just sit and watch the boating world go by.* It's expensive but, compared to the local options, well worth it in our opinion.* We basically have a waterfront cabin with an active view, even if we don't untie the boat.

If there's a downside to being inside the locks, besides the money, it's the locks themselves.* I can single-hand the boat in most situations but not through the locks.* There are work-arounds, such as borrowing crew from another boat, but it does limit my week-day quickies to the lakes.* Time spent getting through the locks is another issue, but one I don't mind too much.* As the saying goes..."if you're on your boat, you're where you want to be."

The photos are screen grabs from Google Earth.* Very recent as that's Tonic arrowed.

RE: Dockage fees

About $3200 a year for a 40' slip which includes fresh water but not electricity. According to a Port of Bellingham newsletter they are considering going to a fee based on the boat's area (length x width) rather than the length of the slip. Apparently more marinas in this area are changing to this method of determining moorage costs. We have yet to see how this change will affect our own moorage fee.

RE: Dockage fees

I'm not at liberty to divulge the price of my slip (at least I don't think so), but it includes electric, wi-fi, and water and is exactly where we want to be for a while!
