Re: Best U.S. city for sailing, living aboard, working
Personally, the PNW and Puget Sound (outside of Seattle) is where I'd be and may be at some point in time (lived in Bellingham, WA for 3 years).
I couldn't be paid to live in California.
I am a So Cal boater and sometimes I wish I wasn't BUT you can't beat the weather and you can just about sail year round without the need of foulies or having to be put "on the hard" the drawbacks are expensive slip fees and not hauling every season the bottom paint stay on longer causing the possabilities of blistering and other problems, Oh yeah, the cost of having to buy sunscreen year round makes the yearly costs a bit higher
no hurricanes, northerlys, snow, toronados, etc...
