New Caseville Marina Owners Will Not Store Boats this Winter
Boaters and sailors who traditionally store their boat at Caseville Marina in the winter are scrambling to find alternatives. Hoy’s Saginaw Bay Marina was sold this summer to Warren and Crystal Kappen. With 138 slips, it’s the largest marina in Caseville. The marina has two wells and hoists that can handle the take out of just about any craft that can get into the harbor. It was during recent inquiries about winter storage it was discovered that Kappen will begin seawall and grounds repairs in the marina this winter. Therefore no boatyard storage will be available.
Alternative Wintering Sites are not Close.
Bayshore Marina is the next closest marina with take-out and storage capability. Located on the south side of Sand Point on Wildfowl Bay it’s a little over 10 mile voyage to get to Bayshore Marina by going around Sand Point. Sailboaters have also traveled across Saginaw Bay to Au Gres Marine who offers a full range of services including winter haulout and storage.
