Ron...there are other factors to the issue.....
I decided to trailer to anywhere and go where the fish may be.
The trailer is an investment and after considering the seasonal costs of
owning a boat in storage or in a boatel or in a boat slip, I chose to buy the
trailer and extend my range of operations. I have gone to places to launch and
fish .......point lookout state park
[saint marys Co.] >>>Ocean city maryland [public launch ] >>sandy point
state park [at bay bridge] .
I bought a yearly pass to ALL Maryland state sparks and forests....And many
have boat ramps and facilities ....
I went to point lookout , used their ramp, their free dock slip , and paid for
overnighting at the camp.
If your vehicle is wimpy for trailering then park it at a commercial boat
storage/ramp access site; recognising you can use the boat in those nearby
waters [range of 15 miles].
If you want to save money on gasoline [ get gas at roadside instead of on-water
And have boat home for maintenance/repair and free storage when not in use,
then trailer it.
You trade off costs and inconvenience...it's your call.
Ask the webmasters at
for tips on boat storage /ramps in commercial locations.
Virtually all marinas in your area of interest have a ramp , a fee, and
possible dock slips /boatel/or otherwise. The costs are often higher than
400 .....I have heard of 800 and more .... The costs rise also.
Trailerng routinely 70 miles is a problem if you must do it often......But
How often would you be doing this?
Where are you coming from[city?/state?]....
So far I have not needed to extra for storage of my boat / trailer while
traveling to the ocean or to point lookout state park.
Consider your plans for use of the boat. Search the internet for
It's time to get your fishing gear in order...
