I know its not even Christmas yet but Ive been thinking about buying a boat for the summer, and I heard that there is a 8 year wait list to get a slip? That cant be true can it?

Can you buy a slip from someone or can you only get them from the waitlist? And does anyone know someone I can bribe to get my name on the top of that waitlist???

Any info would be great..Thanks!

What makes you think you can just zip to the top of a waiting list ? You want to bribe someone ? You cant be for real, if you are you certainly don't deserve a boat for Xmas !

Somehow I think that with a failing economy more than a few good deals on lightly used boats are going to be easy to find, and more than a few slips at prime harbors will go unused...

Do u have to be in the city? You may have a better chance getting a slip in the far burbs (e.g. Winthrop Harbor Marina?) while you're on the 8 year waiting list...

Where did you hear this? Maybe that's true, but I had a friend buy a boat and I know that he was able to immediately get a slip. I have no idea where it is though, but it's in the city.....

It may be a 8 year wait list for certain locations. But I have not heard of it being that long at any of them maybe 1 or 2, but 8?
