need info from wilmington, NC Sailors
Josh: We have a Vagabond 47 homeported in Hampstead,NC about 16nm North of Wrightsville,NC on the ICW. The marina is Harbour Village, a very good secure setting. The fee''s are about $8.50-10.00/LOD ft/month. I can''t give you any personal information on liveaboard conditions, since we''ve only had our boat for about two months. However, we''ve lived in Fayetteville,NC for seven years and our daughter and husband lived in Wilmington,NC for three years. The coldest temperature I''ve seen is 15 degrees F; I''ve seen up to a foot of snow. Both conditions are short lived. I think you could live aboard. A bigger problem if you are thinking of Wrightsville/Wilmington is the hurricane season followed by the Noreasters.
