You’ve finally made the decision to purchase a boat and you couldn’t be more excited!
Now you’re wondering how you’re going to get out on the water…
You could always keep your boat stored on a trailer on your property and when you’re ready to sail, just back it into the water. However, after a few times, you’re going to realize that this strategy gets old pretty quick. It’s inconvenient and you end up getting soaked!
Another option is to rent or buy a dock, but usually, you’ll end up footing a pretty hefty bill. Plus, docks are open on three sides, which means that your boat can move about with currents, waves, and the wakes of other vessels that could potentially lead to damage.
So, what other option do you have? – A boat slip!
What’s a Boat Slip?
Essentially, a boat slip is pretty similar to a pier. The only real difference in the anatomy of the two is that docks are open on three sides, only being bound by a pier, while a slip is bound by a main pier and two smaller piers on either side. Think of it as a parking spot for a boat.
The Benefits of a Boat Slip
If you plan on taking your boat out on water with a high traffic volume – like the Amityville River – a slip is a great option. Why? – Because it offers you easy access to your boat without having to worry about the damage that wakes from other vessels can cause. Add to that the fact that boat slips are generally more budget-friendly than docks, provide you with easy access to your boat, and they are often outfitted with, or within close proximity to, all of the essentials that you need for sailing, like fuel.
