Wife and I moving to our home in North Port this month. Avid boater up here in Connecticut looking forward to a long boating season in Fla. I realize North port is not on the water - my wife has a horse so she ended up winning that debate. Sold my Sea Ray a while back and been looking for boats in Fla everyday. Obvious choice would be a boat I can trailer but just curious as to how much dockage on a boat down there would be. I saw a great deal on a 30 foot Sea Ray. Its a steal at the asking price.
Anyone have an idea what slip rental on a boat like that would be? Probably way out of my price range but just curious. Thanks, Mike

Last time I checked, was 2008, and the going rate at Laishley Marina and Fishermen's Village was about 12.50 per foot per month.

$13/ft/month is the going rate around Punta Gorda, but my guess is that Sarasota would be even more. Last time I checked with marinas closer to the ICW, it was in the $16-18 per ft, per month range. Right around $6,000/yr for my 32 footer. Insane. And that is for a wet slip, NOT a lift. You can get in/out rack storage for boats up to 35ft at most marinas and save some cash. Plus you won't have to have the bottom scraped for barnicles twice a year.
