Re: Opposition to liveaboards

Perhaps one way to look at this is to consider the costs associated with a space in a long-term parking lot vs. a campground.

Unless a liveaboard person is confined the the boat, he/she will be "consuming" more of the property's assets, like showers, utilities (including sewerage), public areas (picnic tables, decks, etc.), and parking (including guests'). Could the increased liveaboard time on the property be a factor in the property's insurance rates? It only makes business sense for a marina operator to look at the weekender differently than the full-time resident.
