Liveaboards in S. Cal

NO I LEFT CALIFORNIA IN 1993 AND DO NOT CARE TO EVER GO BACK UNLESS I NEED A PLACE TO DUMP WASTE OIL.I AM HERE IN SOUTHEAST FLORIDA LIVING ON A 29 FOOT ISLANDER WAYFARER THAT I PAID VERY LITTLE FOR AND MIRACULOUSLY SURVIVED DIRECT HITS FROM 2 HURRICAINES LAST YEAR.I AM CURRENTLY RECOOPERATING FROM MAJOR SURGERY AND AM TEMPORARRILY LIVING SHORESIDE.IT SEEMS THAT 20 YEARS OF WORKING IN THE X-RAY FEILD HAS GIVEN ME THYROID CANCER BUT I HAVE AT LEAST 30 YEARS LEFT.I WAS AT JUST ABOUT ALL OF THE AVAILABLE MARINAS THERE ON SEVERAL DIFFERENT BOATS,AND THE COST OF KEEPING A BOAT THERE WENT UP EVERY YEAR WITH THE EXCUSE THAT ALL OTHER MARINAS WERE RAISING THEIR RATES.SO I STOPPED PAYING LIVEABOARD FEES AND BEGAN TO SNEAK ABOARD AND WAS QUITE SUCCESSFUL AT THAT.EVEN THOUGH IT WAS SO LONG AGO,LET ME ASSURE YOU IF YOU MENTION THE NAME ''STARCREST''AT THE HARBOR OFFICE YOUWILL PROBABLY BE SEARCHED
