First of all great forum! I have been lurking for while and the search function has answered the majority of my questions so this is my first post. We are looking at boats now with the intention of buying our first cruiser to use next year. I live in Michigan on the West Side. I'm hearing from folks that slips are become very hard to get. My home port would preferably be Grand Haven but Muskegon or Holland are close by too. Are there years where you simply can't find a slip? That would be an issue.... HAHA Are most slips leased for a season or purchased outright. In then there seems to be a lot of short term slips. The whole thing is a little confusing. If we have to purchase a $30k slip we might hold off and sock cash away for another year. Its hard to find this information online.
