Summer = free for me, other than working on my parent's waterfront home.
Winter Storage = $13.00 per foot for winter, not per month. Includes nothing but a space. Winterize myself, no shrinkwrap..I use a winter cover.

Next summer I'm going to take down sone trees, widen my driveway and keep the (Hopefully) new boat here, most likely year round. Can't put a lift at my parent's house, and I don't want to keep the next boat in the water. That's going to be tough to get used to though. I'll probably dump it in every Friday night, and leave it in until Sunday.

For $1200 I get a 40ft slip PLUS all these amenties:

1) Lots of kids with steel crab nets scratching the side of the boat looking for soft shell crabs.
2) Within 50 ft. of a ramp that's in bad shape
3) Within 50 ft. of a ramp that everyone that uses it feels free to use my fresh water hose to wash down/flush their bayliners then loose my nossle and leave the hose laying on the ground.
4) Shallow water at low tide - great for low water pickups
5) no dry storage
6) no winter storage
7) a rent-a-cop that has it in for me because I'm always speeding in the marina

I priced around and the only place I was interested was gonna cost me $ 450 per month inside storeage, unlimited in/out. Plus, everybody with "go-fasts" complain about the lift guys scratching the boats. Screw that. I keep mine on a trailer, in my double and a half wide driveway. I'll hassle with the ramp before I pay that kind of money. Besides, gassing up would be at least 60 cents a gallon more.

My covered slip with a lift runs $350 a month on an annual contract. Sucks because now that the boat is out of the water for the winter I am actually paying for a hole in the water.
