Even islanders can get to/from without a boat slip as they did decades ago before they even owned power boats. So, slips are very desirable, but not a necessity and owners charge what the market will bear. In a few years, you'll see some go up for auction as we did in 2010. Whether boat slips or housing, renters are in a difficult spot. Cost of buying is very high, cost of renting is very high. Recession is coming and we'll all be poor, and happy with lower prices.
