Re: Opposition to liveaboards

FWIW, Chef has underestimated the cost of our slip. Just got our next year's contract, sigh. If we were just keeping the boat here and living elsewhere and weekending, we'd probably be looking for a different home base. But there's the difference of being a fulltime liveaboard - this is the view I want to wake up to every morning and the community I want to come home to every evening, and since we have no other housiing costs, we can pay almost as much for 8 pilings and a rectangle of water, and the associated amenities, as a 1-bedroom apartment here... minus the view, of course!
