At last! A newspaper article sympathetic to liveaboards

in last Sunday's Annapolis Capital (where else but the self-proclaimed 'sailing capital of America'?)

Life afloat - Lifestyle

(I also posted this link in the 'Chesapeake Bay' forum)

I've so often seen versions of "liveaboards are all drunks, dropouts and losers who throw their trash to wash up on the beaches, why don't they get jobs and start paying property taxes" etc etc. It's nice to see that someone's figured out that many of us are 'upstanding citizens' who are living on our boats simply because we love it.

Okay, I'm off my soapbox now.
