Marinas handling increased boat traffic

It may be just as hard finding a parking spot in the water as it is finding one on land in some Door County communities. Seasonal slips at some marinas have been gone since they were first made available while others have either limited or completely stopped offering transient slips for boaters. That has kept the pressure on marinas like Sister Bay to have space available. Sister Bay Marina manager Dave Lienau says their forty transient slips are almost completely booked everyday through the middle of August. It gets even tougher on the weekend where he said they are in similar straits through the end of the season at the beginning of fall. It has been that way since much earlier in the year, something Lienau believes is due to the pandemic.



Lienau says if you want to try your luck, you may be able to find transient slips available at your marinas of choice by logging onto their individual websites. The demand for slips mirrors the increase in boat sales, which CNBC reported last week reached a 13-year high in 2020.
