Is there opposition to live aboards or is this an isolated case?
First its all about the MONEY!
Second, its all about regulation.
Third its about image.
There is a definite opposition against sailors living on the hook for free because it skirts the MONEY, REGULATION, & IMAGE factors.
I guess it comes down to, money is freedom, freedom is money!
