Re: Best U.S. city for sailing, living aboard, working

The answer to this will be different for each person because everybody will have their own definition of what makes a town perfect.

For me, a place like Merritt Island is perfect because it is small enough to be relatively free of crime and congestion, the people are friendly and down to earth, the area has a good economic base for the kind of work that I do, and it is close to some larger cities and airports so when I need that cosmopolitan experience it isn't too hard to get it. The climate is really nice, too - the winters can get a bit chilly but overall it's not too bad.

And, oh yeah, the sailing is awesome here! Lock controlled access to the Atlantic and good sailing on the Indian and Banana Rivers.

It's not quite the big rock candy mountain, but it's close!
