I pulled my boat through Chicago when i first brought her home. It wasn't that fun but it was only once. Dock fees in Racine vary greatly. If you dont mind a 20ish minute river cruise from your slip to the lake and less then stellar docks, about $800 for the season (Azarian's Marina). Any where closer to the lake is going to be $1200-$2000 for the season.

Where i am located there are two restaurants/bars and is very handy for customers and a good place to run charters from. There is a fish cleaning station but no security features. It is just a river slip, no real "marina." 209 Dodge St. Racine, Wi if you would like to google satellite map it.

Skipper Buds Reefpoint marina is the big, main marina facility in Racine. It has a secure facility with one restaurant/bar, a pool, showers, bathrooms, a public cleaning station etc.


Feel free to contact me if you would like.
