Re: Opposition to liveaboards

I find it of interest that, although I have lived aboard for more than forty years, marina managements don't often classify me as a liveaboard. We regularly revisit about thirty ports from Maine to the Bahamas, often anchor out and often stay at marinas. Even when we stay at a marina for the monthly rate for one to three months we are not classified as liveaboards because we are soon to be gone. I certainly don't agree with the earlier post that suggested that liveaboards are those that are choosing to either live cheaply or are forced to find livingaboard as an only option. I also agree with earlier posts that some ports are so impacted with moorings that anchoring is very limited, but my obsevations are that the great majority of these moorings (on my familiar East Coast US) are not occupied by people living on their boats.
