Re: Opposition to liveaboards

Wing.... just to be clear. I'm not opposed to liveaboards. I do, however, understand why some marina owners are. I also agree that there are bad apples in all populations. However, the weekenders leave the marina owner alone most of the time and the liveaboards are always around.

I'm just saying that I understand why they are viewed very differently.

I also reject that all live aboards have junk everywhere. However, those that do are also a huge disincentive for the marina owners to permit them and take their chances. Weekend warriors and transients are also much easier to evict.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
