Since inventory of floating home slips is very thin, you have to decide if ownership is important to you. You will pay a bit more for a home in an owned slip like the one currently listed in Tomahawk Moorage on Hayden Island. The slip has a monitory value. But, if your preferred location is in Bridgeton, for example, then you will likely be leasing a slip and pay a bit more of a monthly fee, but have the benefit of living in an easily accessible moorage.
