Slips for sale in Oceanside Harbor…

I just read the local harbor rag. I had no choice as I needed it to fill out some shipping containers for my boat business. The story was about this Frank guy that lost his boat while attempting to begin his journey around the pacific. During trials down in Mission Bay, he had an altercation with some low lifes fleeing the A8 disperse orders and apparently they sabotaged his vessel during his absence. What the article detailed that really caught my attention was that he financed his trip preparations with the proceeds from selling his slip. That’s right, selling his slip. The policy in Oside is that they allow slip transfers if someone sells their boat to someone and the slip can go with the boat. Of course, the transfer cost is really cheap. Well, now another wrinkle has made its way in the use of the transfer fee. Frank found someone that heard of his desire to sail away and Frank has a slip. He could either sublet the slip for a year (and physically make it back in time to redeem it) or just pick up and leave. Or the third option…”sell” his boat to someone that wanted his slip (bypassing the 7 year wait list and literally dozens of irritated people), do the pink slip paperwork at DMV, money passes hands ($10,000 for a 34 foot slip), process the transfer at the harbor office, “sell” the boat back to Frank, and then the guy keeps the slip and moves in his own boat. Frank got cash and fixed his boat which later was sunk, requiring extensive repairs that forced him to donate it to some organization. Days after I read this, I heard that this has been going on several more times, twice on one dock. Fellow harbortards, don’t trailer your boat due to high monthly rental fees…SELL THE SLIP!

  1. Wow, that might need a 42 foot slip. Better call the office. Who knows? Might be one available.

  2. I have measured the Beneteau twice to make sure…It’s exactly 37′ including the pulpit. I went by the office to discuss the 3 foot overhang, and it should be OK in a 34′ slip, as long as the boat doesn’t “grow” while I’m on the waiting list!

  3. Ooh, too bad…boats actually grow if left in the water or rain. Throw some kitty litter on the deck. Never hurts to get a sponge.
    Hope you end up here in Oside soon. Good luck.

  4. Hello, my name is Darby. I’m a 7 year old weimaraner. I’m using this new ctpmuoer for the first time today as my mom, Monica got a virus on the old pc. There has been a lot of fussing going on as she usually uses a pc and this is a mac. I hope she figures it out soon or this could be a very long semester. This is Monica’s third semester. She took time off during the summer to go visit family in the lower 48 and enjoy the Alaska summer. We hiked almost every weekend. I got good at chasing foxes, but would turn around as soon as they barked at me. Due to government cut backs, Monica lost her job this week. She is now determined more than ever to finish the medical/dental receptionist program then continue to medical coding and billing. Her final goal is to become a geriatric nurse. Monica has an eight year old daughter that snuggles up to read to me every night. Dad is in the Air Force so we move a lot! Mom was so excited to find the online program at UAF so she can finish a degree no matter where we live. Well, it’s past my bed time and I’m sure someone’s feet needs me to lay on them. Good luck this semester and enjoy all the exciting stuff you get learn!!

  5. Hello, I am a 2010 Ford Explorer. The family that owns me are prttey busy with the four children they have, ages 9, 7, 5, and 1. The Mom (Jennifer) is a full time student with what seems to be a prttey heavy work load this fall as she seems to rush everywhere she takes me. The Dad (Mark) doesn’t drive me as much since he is in the Army and I have more room for the kids and Jennifer usually has all four in tow when she heads out to go places. Jennifer does baby me since she keeps me as clean as possible being in Alaska I guess that is a tough job since I get taken to the car wash about every week in the summer months and in the winter about every two weeks as she tends to not drive me as much in the winter here. I do not blame her I do not like the cold months here either. I would rather sit in my toasty garage and have my tires nice and warm from the heated floor than be going out and about in the harsh winter weather. My owners love to travel in me as they have driven me all over the United States and Canada. When we move back to warmer weather I will be very happy as I know she will take me places more often and have better weather to travel around in to see new places.
