Default Marina's in Cin/KY area

Looking for suggestions for a good marina on the Ohio.
For the first year, I'm probably gonna have to rack store, or in water dockage w/ winter land storage. I'm not against the in water dockage.
What kind of $$ am I looking at for the season and storage??

You dont want "In Water" on the Ohio river...TRUST ME !
Harbor Town In Dayton KY has trailer in/out....Depending on the boats size.
around a grand. I think thats about it on the Ky side ?

Rack storage = Mandy's landing, great people down there.

Best in water marina is Four seasons on the ohio side but no covered slips. Rivertowne has covered slip and is OK as well.

By all means stay away from watertown on the ky side - it is sooo shallow you will suck mud through your engines and the blocks will fill up - terrible place.

Shelter cove..No racks but In/Out service..sits outside on your trailer.
Washington Marine...Outside + You launch

Don't have the boat yet - but SERIOUSLY considering.
No trailer in the deal, and without being able to take the two (boat + Trailer) might make it more difficult.
Probably cost me about $3000 for a trailer. I'd love to keep it in my backyard, but it might take a year before i have the $ to do that.

Is the Ohio that bad?? I used to leave my old boat in the Maumee. yes, it got scrungy, but it wasn't THAT bad.
Would I need to worry about the commercial boats (wake)??
The boat is a bit heavy for my truck, so I just want to get it here, and then shop for a truck over the next year.

Good God, I'm talking about throwing money in every direction. New boat, new truck, marina/dockage...

This boating thing is worse than Heroin - and my Dad got me hooked when I was 10.
Pusher.

I've got a Scarab in mind.
I live on the high side of the hill of Rte. 8 in Hebron, I can drive down the "goat paths" in 5 mins and be on the water, but I would never try to trailer down there
There are some marinas down that way, and seems more like commercial/ferry travel.
But, might be a place
