Newbie in Slidell, LA

Since this afternoon the happy owner of a 1979 Mainship 34 II. I hope to learn a lot from all you old hands. Thanks for having me.

Welcome from an ex-Slidell person. We lived aboard in Oak Harbor Marina for several years - up until Katrina.
Between Steve and Dimer2, you are in good company.

Welcome aboard Dutchman, I keep my boat near Springfield, about halfway
between Hammond and Baton Rouge. Does your marina have transient slips?

I believe 10 or so, not sure what the rates are but I can find out tomorrow when I sign my lease. Keep in mind it's 3 miles up the creek to nowhere

Welcome aboard Dutchman!
As most aboard will tell you that have been there- Phil's Marina over at Oak Harbor is well worth the trip for a great seafood meal. "Bow tie Pasta" with the lump crab meat is my favorite appetizer- followed by a pound of "Royal Reds".
Have you nailed down your boating plans yet??

I have been living in Slidell for 34 years so far and Marina Cafe is on my not to miss seafood list.

First getting familiar with the new hole in the water then exploring Pontchartrain, Maurepas, Gulf Coast, retired so have 6 Saturdays and a Sunday.

I bought my boat on Lake Pontchartrain (South Shore Marina). You are well located to go East or West.
