Re: How to live aboard? possible?

Have you confirmed the 'legality and availability' of actual live-aboard slips in your area? It seems these days live aboard friendly marinas are far and few between, at least in our neck of the woods...

Lots of people do tend to 'sneak aboard' but that can backfire on you eventually.

Agree your budget is tight for anything truly liveable over 25 feet, esp if 10K includes 'making it seaworthy and liveable'... At least in FL you won't be too concerned about cabin heat, thats a big plus on the liveaboard equation.

Good luck.. keep us posted.
