Re: Best U.S. city for sailing, living aboard, working
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...
Oh, I'd love your weather in Southern CA. It's the amount of people, the maze of interstates and the traffic which I could not live with. There are some areas in Northern CA that are nice but I can't really imagine trying to sail on a regular basis along the coastline up there.
