We have been in Marina Del Ray Madisonville for 2 years in a river slip. Great place and great restaurants in the area.

Berwick mentioned our Boaters Lunch, usually held sometime in Jan or Feb. Later today I'll send information in a "private message" to your profile page inbox on this site, we can exchange contact information and add you to the list.
We have stayed in Madisonville on the boat a few times and enjoyed it.

The first two might work for me. Pierre Part is pretty far for a daily commute.



Thanks


There was one offshore rig fabrication yard across the canal from me that complained to the parish saying they didn’t want to have “million dollar yachts” next door. I had a plan with about 50 slips covered and uncovered. I’m building boat/trailer sheds for now on the property, they will all be +13 ft above sea level. Cypremort Point just south of us has a small marina but there is no room and no protection from storms.

Hey Tete!

Just my $.02. Madisonville would be my choice hands down. Either Beau Chene or Hidden Harbor marinas. If ya leave early morning from BR you're just 45 to an hour away to your boat. All over the Northshore are mechanics, AC and electrical specialists that make boat calls which offers great support.
Best advice earlier was to spend $200,000 then use the $100,000 for upgrades. You might consider the Hat 53ft motor yacht with the DDs (stabilized). There are some great deals out there on this series. Enjoy your search!

BTW, if there is any interest I'm putting a boat up for sale it's 65 x 18.5 custom rebuilt in 1999 solid mahogany interior. 2 - 6 cylinder MAN diesels. Haven't listed it yet. It's in Empire, LA.

Several marinas in the Springfield area and one on the diversion canal out side of Maurepas. I don't know what side of BR you work on but either would be a quick trip to work it you take the back roads.
If you know someone who has a place on the diversion you could try and work something out with them to leave a boat there.

The Stephensville area could be an option. Not really a marina but I know a place on Four Mile Bayou that has a few slips available.
The problem with the Pierre Part area is Lake Veret and Belle River north of the Belle River bridge has silted in so much that I kick up mud in a 25' bay boat.

I like this. Was it built on a production hull?

It was built in 1985 at Master Marine Construction in Ft. Pierce Fla. They built mostly commercial and a few recreational vessels and closed down in the mid 90's. It's been a USCG inspected vessel for charter for up to 49 passengers. We had the entire boat rebuilt in the late 90's for more private accommodation, including full galley saloon, and 3 bedrooms & 3 heads.

We have one in blood river marina. Think there is some open slips. It’s private and have to have a gate code to drive into the marina by land. I can be from the marina to my shop In 45 min. Make em wet would be my other choice in Springfield.

Man that sucks. It would have been a good economic boon for that area. Louisiana isn't really that friendly to boaters.

That might be the best if I can't find anything closer. The commute back and forth might kill me though. I tend to work some crazy hours as a small business owner. But it still might be the best bet.

You think they would get mad if I just tide up to the USS Kidd?

Hats are on the top of my list. They look pretty roomy and with 100k I could do some serious upgrades. I think there is a 53 Hat for sale in Madisonville that might give me a better idea if it is the right fit.

Gorgeous boat. I have to go down the river for a cochon de lait for my cousin's fundraiser Oct 28.

Thanks for the other suggestions. Getting a lot of good ideas from y'all.

Awesome thanks. My shop is off of Monetary. Where is that in relation to you? Just trying to see if I have to add or subtract time.

Right around the corner from you. On South Choctaw one building down from airway. I live in Baton Rouge. Stay on the boat a lot and drive back and forth. It's not bad Hammond has lots of food and what not and its a 10 min drive. Springfield has what you need and a few places to eat. It's very quite also.

You related to Jerry? That’s nice. I’ll be there.

When we started looking for a boat I spent a lot of time searching online. My usual suspects were boats.com, boattrader.com, boatingbay.com, powerboatlistings.com, and their FSBO subsite, yachtworld.com, has less low end boats, also search craigslist in boat heavy markets like Tampa, Miami, Jacksonville, Pensacola, etc.
Many searches and further research on possible contenders gave us a long list of boats we did not want, and a shorter one of makes and models to go look at in person to refine our guesses as to what would suit us.
Welcome aboard, and good luck with the learning experience. JohnS
