FYI: these people were mostly from NYC and surrounds looking to live their "green" lifestyle and escape the city hassles and problems....which they managed to bring with them. Fortunately their betters prevailed and, as far as I know, commercial vessels are allowed to use Falmouth.

PS: I am currently in the Western Gulf with the dawn just coming up over 9 foot "garden wall" seas and blowing 30 knots out of a blue sky....SO beautiful here!!!!
Care to post a picture?

Sure but this boaters seem not to live in the boats because they like to sail but just because it's cheaper and they can. If they could live in a shack on free land without paying nothing I bet that most of them would prefer that. It seems to me that has nothing to do with boats or sailing but to manage a place to live if someone has not the means for any other solution.

Basically it is a social problem related with homeless people and a sad one.

I have lived in Greece for almost three months and its amazing how they have not a big problem with people living on the streets or with people looking like homeless. The economic situation is incredibly bad but they seem to have a big social solidarity and I don't mean a institutional one. A proud nation. I was impressed.

Regarding this problem, they have an huge number of places were one could live permanently on a boat but I did not saw that happen with Greeks. Some cheap marinas and some ports have some neglected boats and some people living in them but they are not Greeks.

You are right to a certain extent. there are other people though, like myself that are just really trying to simplify. The tiny house movement is gaining in popularity, especially in the northwest.

I just sold my house, hopefully when it closes I will be moving onto my 'derelict' $6,000 rustbucket boat and spend my days tinkering around fixing it up.

On the surface you'd be hard pressed to differentiate me from any other bum though.

Re: Interesting boat movie trailer (liveaboards)

I have received info back from the producer. This is going to have a really low low level of distribution. Very sorry, I didn't mean to lead folks on. It's first showing will be on Bainbridge this coming weekend (11/2) 10am at the Pavilion.

You can also buy the dvd directly from them ($15) by sending a note to info@againstthetidemovie.com. At about the same price of two people going to a movie, not a bad deal. And your funds would support independent film production, another good thing.

(btw - I have ZERO commercial ties with this production)
