Another possibility for dockage is renting from a private owner, though ,that leaves you without things like a bathouse and laundry. Two places I would not recommend are Dinner Key and Miamarina becase of the low level of the ammenities (at least in my thinking).

I've been on soulsearcher's Caliber40LRC and thought it was a very nice boat for a liveaboard.

Best of luck in your search,

That dockage has to be arranged in advance and paid for, regardless if you use it or not. You buy the space and it's yours once we go to "watch" until the end of that particular storm, one storm or ten, but it's only temp dockage during the storm. You may want to come down on a jump seat and speak to dockmasters and property owners prior to your coming down. Good luck!
Thanks Mike. I plan on doing that sometime in Jan. Take a look-see. I don't have all the details worked out just now; doing my research to see if all this is really possible. Like I said the stars, moon and planets have to line up just right for this happen at this time. I appreciate the info and first hand knowledge. Why I posted here in sailnet. Try to make fantasy, brokers words into some sense of reality. One thing I can do is sail the boat down to the Grenada (points south) during the "Season" ( Oh darn, I hate it when that has to happen! LOL ) and commute to work. Big advantage of my job. One reason for a serious boat. I plan on doing some serious sailing. The only problem I see is posting on the crew wanted list on Sailnet and Photoshop-per Giu showing up in orange pants or CD with ten grills to mount on the rails.

Melrna,
Have you looked at any of the Shannons listed? Pamlicotraveler on this forum has a S-43 that looks really nice. His pictures are in the online album... I really don't know what they'd be like for livingaboard, but I'm curious.

It's GIU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And what's wrong with my "go fast" orange pants??? It takes a lot of confidence and a very fast boat for a man to wear those...

They are esay to sea in a MOB situation!!!

Or you prefer me without my pants?? I'll do the butt wiggle for you!!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

So when Giulietta gives him the heave ho off the boat someone might take pity on him and rescue him.

Well, as the president and #1 fan of the Alex fan club.... well, bring it on!

BTW, Always wondered why Alex uses his wife's name and not his own on this website. There is a secret here somewhere! Maybe she is the real sailor in the family and she posts here and not her orange pants husband. Really ladies, would you be seen in public with your husband in orange pants!

Mel - I believe it's no more mysterious than he is using Giulietta because it's the boat's name.

Giu,
In a MOB do you think anybody in their right minds would actually come back for you? Ditch the orange pants.
