I've spent some time living aboard at a private dock in Lauderdale. Where are you, Nurmi Ilses off Los Olas or up the New River? If you're in Lauderdale you have pump out at the slip and you're still in a boating community with boating neighbors. As to the $1200/mo being justified; it's not justified by what the marina provides, but by what the market allows on the ICW. Better rates are always available off the tourist track, private docks & up the New River. Ft. Lauderdale is my home town and much is available as it's one of the "boating capitols", but the downside is that for sailing you have the ocean or nothing. No available inland protected bays or lagoons for an afternoon out for a short sail. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
