    I'm thinking of parking the boat at a marina on the Mississippi this summer. I'm focused on the 30 mile or so stretch of river between Alton and the Winfield Dam. I did some initial recon of the area using google earth and cam up with seven potential marinas on the Missouri side in this stretch. There could be more since I glanced over a few of the smaller ones thinking that they must be private clubs or such. I'm not finding much info on the net for any of the marinas I identified. Sherwood marina did have a small site with little to no functionality. Looks like I might need to take a drive this weekend and check them out.

    Do any of the BOC have experience with any of these...or ones I might have missed for that matter? How much is it gonna cost me? Any info would be appreciated. I'll post up the results of my weekend scouting trip when I get back.

    Below are the seven I saw on google earth--starting at the Winfield Dam and working down stream.

    1. Main street and Missouri C (across from Two Branch Island)
    2. Harbor Grove Dr (across from Dardenne Island)
    3. & 4. There are two off of Washeon Rd. (across from Bolter Island)
    5. Woodland Yacht Club (across from Enterprise Island)
    6. Sherwood MArina (in Portage Des Sioux)
    7. Yachtview Dr. (just upriver from the Alton Bridge)

    Yeah I've been to all of them and I know that North Shore Yacht Club is where my buddy keeps is Baja for a pretty reasonable price...plus it's fairly decent with good people working there.
