Re: Opposition to liveaboards
People will band into tribes for just about any reason. In fact, if there's no apparent reason to oppose the "other" they'll make one up. Such it is with the "liveaboards" vs the "weekenders." It's the same here in ski country where we deride the "turkeys" who come from cities to enjoy the mountains. It's just a sad fact of human nature. "Live and let live" is a great, elusive idea.
Something to that, I suppose.
However, as I've mentioned in my marina, its nearly impossible to tell who is living aboard for the summer. As a result, every weekender I know wants to be just like them. It's only the odd inconsiderate boater (weekender or liveaboard) that shakes the peace. Having prolonged junk around would be inconsiderate in our marina neighborhood.

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