Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?
I like the taste of milk, but the powdered milk never seems fresh. So I'm planning to cruise on my 90 foot sailing barge with our family cow, Bessie.
Is there any liveaboard restrictions on the east coast that affect boats with livestock? I've heard they don't like people staying on one place, and some places don't allow raising livestock within the city limits.
We'd like to start by spending a month in downtown Boston, then cruise south, visiting New York, Philly, Baltimore, Washington, and end up somewhere around South Beach, FL. Then we'd hop across to the Bahamas and make money selling fresh milk and home made ice cream to other cruisers.
Has anyone done something similar? Should we bring chickens too, so other cruisers can enjoy the sounds of roosters in the morning? Also, how much do cruisers like fresh bacon?

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
