Yeah I hear ya. Wife and I thought of it as a city condo as well and live at the harbor every weekend so we get our money's worth, but being that we have our first little one on the way we aren't sure how much usage we will get out of the boat next season vs the cost of a city slip.Usually on a cruise to Waukegan about 35 miles on a decent wave day I'll burn about 1/4 tank of fuel each way....add in some chop and of course it gets worse.But harbor amenities are different too. Free dock box, no additional fee's for dingies, cable tv hookup at the dock and the area in general are really trying to cater to boaters and make the harbor a focal point.
