Cool To Slip or Valet, that is the question

Now that we have had the boat out several times so far this season and have gotten comfortable with the whole launch-recover-trailering business, I find myself not wanting to tow back and forth from Connecticut, wanting instead to spend all our time on Winni. I do have a place to store the boat at my in-laws place, but thought how convienient it would be if it was already in the water, or at least in a rack ready to be put in the water a a moments notice.

You see, it is only a 3 1/2 hr. ride from Ct to NH, so we could be in town by 9pm on a friday evening, out on the boat Saturday and possibly Sun morning and home to Ct by supper Sunday. The question is this, what makes more sense, valet at say... Channel Marine/Thurstons or Irwins (closest to where we stay) or look for slip space on a seasonal basis? What are the pluses~minuses and which is more cost effective? Any help is appreciated, Thanks in advance, Joe
