Looking for a boat slip to dock your boat in eastern North Carolina?

Finding the ideal location with boat slips meeting your boat’s unique needs can be challenging, but it does not have to be if you keep the following tips in mind as you search for your next slip:

Know your boat’s dimensions – the first step in finding a boat slip is to know all of your boat’s measurements, including its width, height and draft. If you are unsure of your boat’s measurements, you might end up renting a slip that will not accommodate your boat or is in water too shallow for your sailboat’s draft.

Accessibility to the boat slip – another important piece of information, particularly for boaters with sail boats, is whether the slip provides sufficient access to the water in which you intend to travel. You must know whether there are any fixed bridges or other obstacles that would impede your access to and from the slip. If there are any bridges, research the clearance both at high tide and low tide to make sure your boat’s height will allow unrestricted access to your slip.  Also, if there are any draw bridges in the area, you need to determine when and how those bridges are opened so that you can navigate to and from your slip.

Marina Slips – if you are searching for a marina slip, there are several factors you will want to consider. For example:

  1. Does the marina slip have a fresh water supply on the dock?
  2. Are there electrical hookups for each slip?
  3. Are liveaboards or transients allowed?
  4. Is there a fuel dock near the boat slip and does it offer the type of fuel required by your boat?
  5. What other amenities are offered at the marina (laundry, internet access, supplies, etc.)?
  6. Does the marina provide 24 hour access to your boat slip?
  7. Does the marina provide ample parking
