Nice slip with a lift. Gonna have to check into that. Marina del ray is where I'm suppose to dock set up by Bent Marine but other friends are telling me you could throw a light bulb in the water there and it will light up. Bad corrosion stuff going on there from what I hear so I won't be there long if this is truly the case. I as well plan to trailer mine in the driveway here at home when I am offshore on my 6 week rotation but do want to lock something in for when I am back home for my 6 weeks off, someplace that's not going to eat my boat.

Didn't want to say anything that I didn't know for sure, but you're the second person to report about bad electrolysis issues at Marina Del Ray. A friend of mine had to replace an entire lower unit due to his boat sitting in the water there. Besides that, I believe that most of the slips are not covered.

At Salty's, there are covered non floating slips available as well for a lesser charge. They're rented out on a monthly basis, mostly for summer only clients.

Yes! We just bought ours this week. Live in Covington and we boat I the tchefuncta river. Question....where do you bring your boat for repairs? Our stopped working the first day we took it out. Now I'm depressed!

I know this post is late but passing on info from a friend that works at Hammond Harley Davidson, He use to work at Bent Marine and told me this.....Darren White, the "mercruiser whisperer"

He as well works at Bent Marine in Madisonville, as I was told yesterday. Just passing on the info...

Offshoretechman……were you out on the Tchefuncta River today? Saw a couple in a Chap that made me think of you, getting fuel at Marina Del Ray and then running south to the lake. I was not far behind them. Saw them again later as I was going to my slip.

Welcome to the Chap family- as an ol timer I will assure you not only will you be glad you purchased a Chap but you will find the forum to be a place of great information and interaction.

As to us LA folks- well water runs in our veins . I grew up on the river and the lakes- Last weekend we took a quick trip across Maurpas into LP - stopped ate at Machac- great day

I encourage you to boat down to Manchac- eat at Middendorfs- or a burger at the Fuel stop or venture into Lake Maurepas and travel to the rivers- Blind RIver/Diversion Canal/ Amite RIvers- lots of places to eat- watering holes or back around to Tickfaw - Prop Stop close to the lake

Have fun, be safe and enjoy the summer

Would enjoy traveling to other destinations from Lake Pontchatrain. I know my way to Middendorf's but have never been to the Prop Stop or the Fuel Stop.

Any source to find navigation to these places?
