Re: Relocating to SoCal to liveaboard - have a catch 22...

Hi folks.
Thanks for your feedback when I initially posted this.
This week I moved aboard a Catalina 42 and am sailing her from San Diego to San Pedro this weekend to settle into our port of call. I'm thrilled to be back at the ocean, back in California, and living aboard.

I started a blog at sea trial, about a month ago. Search for WaterAndWine on Sailblogs to check it out (if you're having trouble sleeping).

Hey, Tom.

We're located in the Wilmington area. Which marina did you end up in?

I'll second that. My boat was at the "Marina Del Rey Marina" (that's not a typo) when I bought it. Almar had recently taken over management of that marina and the new office staff was full of nothing by condescending BS, outright lies, and price hikes. I moved to King Harbor ASAP, and never looked back.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

I'm at Cabrillo Marina, beginning August 4. In San Diego, dry dock now (purchased boat from San Diego).
