Some States, for instance I think Georgia, has outlawed liveaboards! That is how much it is not welcomed, regardless of any financial realities.
RI isn't called the Ocean State for nothing!

Seriously, you can go to any place full of locals (not summer tourists) and nearly all of them will either own a boat, just went boating, work on the water, etc, etc. It's cultural here. Love it.

I've heard of state or municipalities that have outlawed staying on anchor for extended periods. First I'm hearing of an entire state that bans liveaboards. Wow.
