I finally got ahold of the guy with the mooring…and he has done nothing. He made no effort to make arrangements to move said mooring, nothing. I told him thanks, but never mind. The good news, or as reasonably good as it can get at the moment is, that I can stay put in the marina for another month. Thanks to an unexpectedly more better month income wise, I can juuuussst squeak by with another month of rent. Not that I want to spend another $720 but it’s my best option for the moment. Pay the rent, fall back, and regroup.
I talked with the marina manager and she prefers I stay too. But there is the motor issue. Next month all boats will be inspected for having a running engine. I currently have none. She did indicate that everyone would be given some leeway to obtain an engine within a certain period of time so that gives me some cushion. But no matter what happens, if I keep the boat, I will need an engine of some kind.
As for what will happen later, I now know that if I go on the hook, it will be the city mooring field. No other option. But at least I can partly relax and try to make some more money for next month.
I have to say that the last week has been one of the most stressful I have been through since moving to this particular marina. None of the options before me were particularly enticing. It flat wore my ass out and I need to rethink what I want to do. At least I have some time to do so. But, for now, I can stay put. I still have the boat, power, water, showers, laundry, and a place to lay my weary head. Time to regroup and fight another day.
