Our New Marina in Canton
|This is the entrance to D dock looking west toward the Inner Harbor. |
I applied a "painted" effect to this photograph to make it more "dreamy" on a rainy day.
One of the biggest changes we've experienced is going from fixed docks to floating docks. Previously, we would step up onto our boat during a high tide and down onto the boat during a low tide. With floating docks, the distance between the dock and the boat's deck is always the same--in fact, it is always a pretty high step up onto the deck.

getting on and off the boat easier.
The Area is Much Busier
Temporary Parking Problems
|Maggie's little red beetle convertible is kept inside the security fence.|
WiFi: Better but Less Accessible
|The boater's lounge is about 30-feet by 35-feet with a big flat screen TV. |
It can easily seat a couple dozen people.

Much Less Driving Means More Free Time
Different People - Different Boats
The residents of Canton far out number boat owners and they are young professionals, mostly in their twenties and thirties. The boat owners seem equally distributed among all age groups and boats are equally distributed between power and sail.
Our new marina is quite different from our old marina. Both have their merits. Our new marina has exceeded my expectations and we are easily adapting to our new environment. We expect to buy our slip at the end of this year and use it as our summer base--so far, I think it will work out fine.
