maybe ship shops for rack service? Probably the same if not more than Bass River Marina. Maybe call Skippys pier 1 and ask for Sandy...she might have an open slip....no moorings to rent in BR.

trailering every day for two weeks in and out of the water sounds like a pain in the a$$. Was hoping someone had a slip / mooring they were not using and wanted some quick cash for those two weeks. I would even consider the dock at a private home...

bass river waterfront townhouses, formerly jolly captain condos. lots of empty slips there. they are owned individually by the condo owners. I'm sure one or more of them wouldn't turn down a little cash to let you occupy an otherwise empty slip for a couple weeks. the challenge will be getting in contact with one of the empty slip owners. search craigslist...if that doesn't work then I wouldn't hesitate to just show up and see if there is someone outside at the pool or in their yard or on the docks that could help put you in contact with an empty slip owner.

right on rte 28 over the bass river bridge on the yarmouth side.

Thanks chainsaw. That's a great idea. I know exactly where that is. I'm gonna give that a try.

I know that area well, owning a house a stone's throw from the bass. 2 things to consider: 1) an 18 is about as easy as it gets launching by yourself, and 2) there are many options on that part of the cape - wind blowing on the south side, go over to the bay - wind bad on the bay side go south.

In an 18, you'll be limited mostly be sea conditions. The beauty of a small boat is that you're mobile - and for considerably less fuel cost. If you were in the bass and wanted to go to MV, that's a long trip and decent fuel burn - why not trailer to falmouth? and, how about a trip to ptown? if conditions are good, not too difficult getting to stellwagen - even in an 18 - I've done it many times. Then there is the ramp in sandwich - beautiful and great fishing. In fact, you could trip plan and hit as many ramps (and as many different fishing spots) as you wanted with 2 weeks. They are all in fairly close proximity.

just my opinion.

PITA, yes, but also provides you the ability to hit a LOT of different areas. Head up to Truro and go out of Pamet for your own private whale watch (and maybe stumble across some tuna, so get the right permits). Head out of Barnstable and hit the flats for stripers. Go out of Wellfleet and hit Jeremy's point (sandbar only accessible by boat) for the day. Go down to Falmouth and bottom fish...etc...

In Barnstable your mooring has a boat assigned and must have a decal, no substitutions. Unless you rent from a marina ,again pricey Trailering is ok parking not so good.

Agree with sentiments expressed by Joe and Ron above. Add to that launching in the Pleasant Bay area, with strong westerlies it's a good place to go especially when you have a decent tide- lots of seals. With a trailer, there are SO many good opportunities on the Cape.

Trailering allows you to go where the wind blows...literally. If it's snotty SSW wind blowing hard on south side, head to the bay. Vice versa, heavy north wind, head to south side.
