So moving my belongings of 3 months of living at the vinyl cabin back to my home island involves some logistics, which I would like to share! This process applies to anything of a certain quantity that one happens to be bringing over. For bigger items or larger quantities we have a small skiff company and a barge service available to us.
BTW – I am NOT whining!
First I pack up the car and drive to the marina parkade
Carry stuff from car down to my boat- this day it took 2 arm loads down
Drive car to my own parkade across the street. Why not keep the car at the marina parkade? Difference of $50.
Walk from parkade to boat
Travel across the water to a drop off point
Take boat to my dock
Taking my valuables, walk to house to pick up van (up to about 5 years ago out of 25 we used a wheelbarrow)
Drive van to pick up spot.
load stuff (two trips up/down ramp again)
drive to house
unload ( two trips)
And rejoice over all the money I save on Gym memberships!
