Though there are many valid positives to having liveaboards in an area, not to mention the revenue from the marine industry, what I am speaking to is the PERCEPTION from homeowners, which is not as aligned to these realities as you might think they should be.

It is that perception which is at the heart of their less than welcoming reception of "liveaboards".
