When I was in Sausalito, CA., these issues were brought up numerous times in town meetings.

Nobody is diminishing their feelings towards liveaboards because of the diminishing valuation of land homes, or because of any marine related influx to the general economy of the area.
I think they are better with it than some other places. Around here half those homeowners near the Bay have jobs because of the marine industry. Boaters are their life blood.
