In the process of looking for moorage space for rent, I've seen a few options where dock owners are willing to give use of their dock in exchange for use of my boat. Has anyone had experience with this? Aside from meeting with the person and feeling them out to understand their experience with boats and if they seem trustworthy or not, did you get anything in writing? What did that cover (e.g. usage schedule, clean up, gas refills, if something breaks down?)
One of the options I am considering is minutes from my house and the dock is owned by a former boat owner who seems to be responsible and knowledgeable about boats. I'm still hesitant, but I could see this working in certain situations and avoiding a $250/month boat dock rental charge would be nice! What do you think?
