Re: Show us your home port!

Newport Harbor....It's huge compared to some of your home ports....Someone said once that there are more sailboats in Newport Harbor than anywhere else on the west coast. Not sure if thats still true as there are LOTS of powerboats here now, but still, every bit of shoreline in the harbor is a slip, and there are a number of mooring fields and yet there are still no vacancies.

Re: Show us your home port!

My home port is the backyard, unfortunately with the "Spring" that we have had my floaters are not out and the winter stick is still on the mooring.

It won't be long and splash isn't until late May...



I am all the way in...at least my batteries will get topped off (20 minutes out..LOL)



Yup...all the way in...LOL

Re: Show us your home port!

I have two moorings which I call home- both in Ubatuba on the coast of Sao Paulo state, Brazil. I keep my boat in a sheltered bay on a mooring field with taxiboat service to and from the boat (pic 1). This is where my boat stays when we're not aboard. When we're on the boat and in the general area we usually sleep on our other mooring in another tiny cove nearby (pic 2). The mooring is in front of a lovely little beach and the only access to the cove is by boat or hiking trail. It's perfect for overnighting- calm water, great swimming and snorkeling and one can usually buy very inexpensive shrimp, fish or squid from fishing boats anchoring there overnight.

Re: Show us your home port!

We're in the heart of Vancouver BC, at the False Creek Fishermans' Floats. 5 minutes to sails up once we're off the dock. Great to have a parking space in this area of town, Granville Island minutes away, lots of good walking/sea wall/parks and beaches nearby.

Re: Show us your home port!

Our Home port is Home, from our backyard in Oriental, NC.



We are on a creek looking out to the Neuse River. It is 5 miles wide at this point as it empties into the lower part of Pamlico Sound, behing the Outer Banks.

The problem is, every time I try to look at the pic it is night time!
Is this where your boat is?
