    Our docks are 26' covered with a lift including electric and water.  Security camera's all over and a picnic area with bbq and fire pit as well.  All that for $1800 a year......300 due in the fall which covers winter storage on the lift and the balance due mid feb.  The docks and lifts were brand new in 2012 so they are some of the newest and nicest on our lake.


    Our docks River Run Harbor

    You are getting a great deal.  This slip cost $2,000. Very nice Marina and the price is competitive with other  Marina's.

    After having some issues with our old marina .We found a subdivision that owns their own marina on the Inland Waterway in Indian River Mi . So we purchased a vacant lot in the subdivision and now we have a slip that we own ./monthly_2017_02/large.IMG_0830.jpg.68e77f03fe97911ce93131b0461795f0.jpg/monthly_2017_02/large.IMG_0833.jpg.053a3fd55ae4364dce2f825e31061577.jpg

    We found lots in Greenbackville, VA. $1500 for lot, $100/mo HOA. Private marina, but boat must stay at marina. Can be out short term, but can't just "hold" a open dock. I was going to buy a lot so we'd have a place to go, I pretty much had it all worked out ..... then ..... I told Panthergirl .... nixed that plan. She said gotta be further south.  ;)

    Agree with Panther Girl.  If going to make the move guarantee yourself the best weather possible

    So you're saying there is still a chance they'll move to Iowa?

    Yes, minimum 1200 sf. No mobile homes. There's a "buy as is" (not real bad) home, with dock for $125,000 for sale right now.


    There's "non buildable" lots for like $500. People buy them for access to the golf course, marina, pools, etc....


    Oh, the lot I'm wanting ALREADY HAS the septic test and certificate of placement letter (that's worth $750).

    LOL!!! I could transfer to probably a dozen jobs in my company right now. Probably make lots more money. But I'm NOT moving to Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, New York, (all colder) or ANYWHERE not close to boating availability.

    Yeah, I edited that before I posted. I thought some people might take offense that I don't want to live in their state.  :lol:


    I went to school in Madison in Jan/Feb last year and hung out with guys from Minnesota. It was funny listening to them about how serious they were about ice fishing. I thought they were nuts. I think it was more like deer (beer) camps around here!  :p

    We paid $700 for our uncovered slip last year but the marina has been sold so we'll see what they charge this year. No water, electric or security and just a porta-potty. Obviously, nothing fancy but it fits our needs.

    We are looking at temps in the 60's and sunny here this weekend......very rare for mid Feb in Ohio.  Should I or shouldn't I take the boat battery to the lake with us this weekend just for a quick trip out and around the lake :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
