questions about slippin boat next year

Right now I have a 19.5 foot Monark that I love. I have to drive 1.5 hours to get to Huron, or 3ish hours to get to get to Lake Michigan. I am seriously thinking about selling my boat and getting a bigger boat and slipping it somewhere for next season. Then I could just cruise over and save gas and time not trailering everywhere. I would be sleeping on the boat. I am a teacher and don't work in the summers so I have plenty of time to fish, just hate the hassel and money involved in trailering.

1. What could I expect to pay to slip for season?

2. Is there a size of boat that is preferred to slip? I was thinking like a 24 footer.

3. How's the atmosphere at most slips? I would be looking at a fun place with a sense of community and socializing.

Thanks!!

Brandon, I have slipped a boat for over 30 trs now in ludington and love the conveience, I don't think you will find you will save much money as I know most marinas where you will slip a 24 foot boat that have nice amenities you should expect to pay between 1200.00 to 1500.00 for a season.There are plenty of other marinas that are available at lower rates but you get what you pay for and I would advise you to visit some of them first and talk with some of the seasonal slip holders.

Some marinas are party marinas where the partiers reside and are not very family or fisherman friendly unless you don't mind people keeping you up late when you want to go to bed early to go fishing . If you want any imput about the ludington marinas please feel free to pm me.
