Marina Recommendations Please
My wife and I are searching for a marina or similar facility where we can keep a 40 ft OAL trawler in a covered slip on an annual contract and can commute to conveniently from our home in central Indiana to spend weekends and vacation weeks for the next few years before retirement and a possible great loop adventure. We have been looking in the Kentucky Lake Barkley / Kentucky Lake area but will welcome all suggestions. The ideal facility would be clean, well kept, quiet, with usual utilities, moderate climate to not have to winterize, provide pleasurable short trip boating experiences, and be convenient to a grocery store, home improvement center, a few restaurants, hotel for guests, and other amenities to serve as a comfortable home-away-from home for a few years. We have an additional thought to move the boat to a marina in Madison or Jeffersonville, Indiana one hour car ride from our home for a few months (June through August). So, it would be most ideal if we could work out a prorate on the annual contract and allow the slip to rented to a seasonal or transient boater and use the prorate savings toward transient dockage in Indiana. Thank you for your consideration and suggestions.
