Buying a cabin on Pine Island. What would you consider the best marina for storing my boat during the season when I'm not at the cabin? Any other thoughts or comments also appreciated.

Depends on which part of Pine your cabin is on... it's a BIG island! I keep by boat at Shamrock Marina. I love the people there and it's quieter than Moc Point. The owner, Randy, and his family give first class service. If your cabin is on the far east end, Glenwood resort is closer (but the car ride is longer if you're coming from the south).

One thing to consider about Glenwood is their lack of dock space. We just returned from there a few weeks ago and had a few occasions where we returned from fishing and had no dock space for our boat. With the bar traffic (especially on weekends), the folks that use the docks/ramp from the islands and the resort guests, it can get a bit tight. Good people and adequate ramp, but maybe already a bit over utilized.

You may want to contact Gruben's Marina. They have a few covered slips and a ton of dock space.

I second PortageBay. You get Great Service at Shamrock. A phone call on your way up and they will have your boat out of the building (by forklift) and in the water and full of gas. You can load your boat right from your car. Its nice not having to haul your stuff down to the dock and then out to your slip. Shamrock gets my reccomendation everytime I am asked.

Shamrock gets my nod also! smile.gif

Good docking space, gas, and as safe as it can get on the lake.

I don't have any experience with Shamrock, Glenwood, or Gruben's; however, I would not recommend the (for now un-named) marina along Pike Bay drive. Probably too far away from your island anyway, but I just wanted to mention that I experienced some really poor service there when I stored my boat there for a season.
