Re: Opposition to liveaboards
I think the posters here are ignoring a HUGE issue. Since cruising from Portland Oregon to San Diego California we have had several issues with "liveaboards" Please understand what I mean by 'liveaboard' are those who are slipped up in a sailboat and NEVER LEAVE. They just sit there, collecting junk, watching the boat fall into disrepair, and getting very protective and agressive about 'their dock'.
Sailors are the most wonderful people I have met so far and I have been travelling the world since my 20s. However liveaboards are usually a problem. Not all of them of course. A liveaboard taught me how to sail, and Larry was a wonderful guy!
