    Default Boat slip vs dry dock

    I don't have it in me to paint up my supra lol. We have bottom paint on our fishing boat and that's hard enough to get over. It definitely helps with the scum though

    If I had to trailer every time, I would not boat, so wet slip is the only option!!!

    I get the feeling some people own boats but are afraid to use them. I spend my time using the boat rather than worrying about something that might happen, and if it does you fix it and move on...

    I put 120+ hours last season, if you want to spend as much time possible boating, a slip is the best way.. No one says you need to leave it in the slip continuously, pull it out whenever you want..The first few times I left it in I was nervous, but doing anything new that's too be expected..

    Haha. Well hopefully I'll be living on a lake in the next couple years so won't have to worry about it. Just need to decide where...

    Just be happy I didn't ask which is better, exile or wetsounds lol.

    In better news, just finished installing my new sub and custom box. Onto the ballast upgrade and I'll be set for summer.

    For those of you speaking about wet-slipping AT YOUR RESIDENCE on the water need not contribute, come on that is a whole different story than wet-slipping at a marina. Not even in the same realm. Consider yourselves very fortunate. OP, you're going to get two sides of opinions on this or any question you ask. Decide for yourself.

    I'll bite and derail the thread.

    After towing the boat back from the river in a sand storm outside of Palm Springs yesterday I recommend towing with a cover on. I have spent hours today removing sand from every nook and cranny.
