Marina was sold we had to leave.

So you bought your slip right? I did the same, but will be for next season as I had to pay Safe Harbor back in Oct. for this years slip. But to your point, initially 40K, then <1K quarterly. The only way to be certain, mostly ...
Yeah, I got it just before the Covid madness too, so I could probably get close to $110k for it now
 
Up here on Cape cod MA slip fees are getting crazy because there is zero slip availability so they can charge whatever they want, Otherwise you won’t have a place for the boat Two years ago my slip was $17,000 a year. Last year went to $22,000 and this year went to $25,000. To be fair, I do have an 80 foot slip but I can’t get a smaller slip to bring the cost down because there is nothing available.

We did the same here on the South Shore of Long Island. Bought in Jan 2020 for $42K and pay $530 a quarter commons charges and electric. We loved the location of the slip and didn’t want to worry about losing it.

Wow, for LI that's a great price. Good luck with it!
 
That's changing and very quickly. Perhaps Middle River hasn't changed yet, but it will.
I dont see that happening. Way too much competition and slip availability. And thats not counting the hundreds of waterfront homes renting out slips too.
This just came up on FB. Not my marina.

Like I said maybe not for Middle River, around Kent Narrows it has already changed. So it has already happened.
 
I’m $3,500 summer plus $700 for the dinghy plus $4,500 for heated winter storage…. And these are good prices in my area
What temperature do they keep the storage at in winter there.

I don’t know what it’s set at but it’s warm…I would guess probably 65.. when working on the boat it’s actually too warm

Wow, I was curious as I have a boat up there under contract at Sandusky in heated storage and I was amazed they heated those huge buildings.
Must cost a fortune to heat them.

Most are around 50 deg around me. This place I’m at is new, well insulated and there are multiple smaller buildings…. They are also dehumidified
 
I sored at a place in Illinois with radiant heat in the floor. The owner said once the slab is warm it is a license to steal.
 
Never thought about that, makes sense.

What does that mean exactly? I mean a warm floor doesn't change much but make things warmer.

I think he meant that with radiant heat, once you spend the $$ getting the thermal mass (slab in this case) up to temperature, the additional dollars to keep the slab at that temp is small. Radiant floor heat is pretty effective.
