Leasing Sailboats

Im planning to move to the San Diego area in the next few months and had considered the idea of buying/leasing a sailboat (something in the mid 30s) to live aboard for my time there. Im not sure ive ever heard of leasing out smaller sailboats. if anyone has any information on this please respond.

Leasing Sailboats

Long term leases don''t seem common with any boats big or small. Short term lease are called "charters" mostly by the week and mostly a lot of money. Buy the boat then sell it later.

Slips in San Diego are not the easiest thing to come by either nor are they inexpensive. There are no long term places in San Diego Harbor you can remain on the hook for more than a few days free. City mourings are available with a wait list though the fee isn''t really that hideous. You need to check out that angle. Mission Bay may prove a better choice. Not being in San Diego is probably a given. You would not be the first person to try that route in San Diego where housing is expensive. The climate works though. People do live on boats there. It wouldn''t hurt if you had a whole lot of money either. I lived for a week on a sailboat out on the end of Shelter Island in a marina. It was nice. Great sailing too.

The problem with living in a small boat is there is no place for all your land based stuff. In the end you sail very little (too much stuff aboard) and never have enough storage (too much stuff). Sort of the worst of both ends of the spectrum all at once.

It really is about all your stuff. What you want and what you need become a preoccupation. Giving up material posessions would be a good idea right now. You just don''t have room for any of them.
