Thanks for the information everybody! I think it's a shame that liveaboards have such a negative image in the eyes of marina managers and the public in general. I read alot of articles/posts about derelict boats cluttering up harbors. Funny thing is that the pictures I see of them have nobody aboard. Town managers don't try to run everybody out of town when a select few junk up their properties. They just fine them, then charge them for the cost of cleanup. I'm sure they could locate the owners to rectify the situation. If they arent registered/documented, impound them, sell the boats, and apply the money to harbor upkeep. It's pretty easy to toss a few bad apples off the tree. Don't burn the tree in the process!
with any luck, I'll only need to stay in a marina for a year or two at most. After that, I'll be gone over the horizon, at least fr a few years!
Take care everybody!
