Default RI / Summer Storage or Slip

Looking again for a place to keep the boat. Last year I was successful at locating a place near Point Judith to keep my boat on the trailer there, but this year I may not be able to due to construction.

Anyone have a place or know someone near the Pond or even up and down the coast further that would keep a boat on a trailer for the summer.

I am travelling from Worcester area and really just need a place to reduce trailer miles.

If reasonable I would entertain a slip, but I am only getting to the boat 2-3 times a month.

Ponaug Marina usually has space available for trailered boats. It's in Apponaug. Only 5 minutes off Rt. 95. Call and ask for Ann. www.ponaugmarina.com

They are one of the few that allow trailered boats, but they do fill up. They also do a monthly. Cheaper than season but more than half the seasonal cost. Anything over a month ends up being more cost effective for the season. Good people. Secure. They also have a private ramp but not great for a longer boat.

There's a public ramp a few hundred feet from Stone Cove if conditions aren't ideal there. I've launched and retrieved boat as large as 33' at the public ramp.

I know. I use it. It is in tough shape, and the parking sucks. Couple that with the restaurant that is there is it becomes a shit show in the afternoon. If you park in the lot across the street you will likely get blocked in by the morons that figure a 35' trailer can take 90 degree turns to get around them. Unfortunately point Judith gets so busy that I would get blocked in there as they park in the middle as well.

I would use the ramp in the marina personally unless it won't work due to boat size.

He wouldn't have to worry about parking if he stores his boat at Stone Cove. I've never used the ramp at the marina but I've used the public ramp several times. I just used it to pull my 31 footer 3 weeks ago without any issues.

I called Stone Cove. No spots to store on the trailer.

I will tell you from experience that during the season in the afternoon on a weekend the place is a cluster F%^&. The new restaurant at the top of the ramp gets jammed, they have valet parking, I believe its the owner who regularly parks his Land rover in front of the fire hydrant at the top of the ramp almost blocking it off to vehicles with long trailers, etc..


Merely trying to warn the guy that if he uses it not to park across the street as he will very likely get blocked in and if possible use the ramp at the marina 100' away from where he parks rather than 200 yards. down the street.

That's odd. No spots as in they are full or no spots as they are not allowing this anymore?

I don't know. I inquired through email through the website about storing on the trailer for the summer. The response I got back was "Sorry, no"

I have seen the parking lot across from the restaurant. There is no way I could maneuver there in the height of summer. I stopped in once around 6:00 on a Saturday evening. There were about 6 boat trailers in the lot and not one would've gotten out that evening.

No doubt, ever since the restaurant was reopened its a cluster f**k there now. When I'm coming back from Narragansett heading to the boat I see all the trailers blocked in. It used to be a good spot to launch without dealing with the crowds down in Galilee....not anymore.

I've seen 30' boats go in at stone cove.

The public launch is a complete disaster in the summer. as are most.

Can't hate the restaurant though, finally have a successful, local, small business in there. that place has been 5 different restaurants over the last 15 years until two ten moved in.

Certainly not the restaurants fault the way some of the clueless people park.
