Interesting advice from the liveaboard section of the forum But really, I do appreciate the advice. I know of a few people who liveaboard (legally) in Newport, they tell me a 40' slip is around $2K a year. Unfortunately I'm not close friends with any of them, so seeing it first hand (other than just walking the docks) hasn't happened.

I have several questions about living aboard, I hope its all good to ask them here.

What kind of maintenance costs should I expect (very handy person, have my own repair business, but would of course have to pay for haul-outs and things that require large equipment specific to a boat)?

Also we are very comfortable in our 35' trailer, what length of sailboat should we consider for similar living space (of course make/era will have a large effect)?

I'll try to limit myself to one or two questions at a time
