Greetings

After lurking here for a few days I've decided to join. Love reading about anything sailing. I have been sailing for 3+ years now, starting out on a Johnson M16 on which I taught myself, then less than one year later, in 2006, moved up to my present rig, a Mac 25, which I single handed all last summer and had a blast. I am now ready to get serious, get a proper yacht and live aboard and see what happens. I presently reside in Calgary, AB, though really just an extended visit, but really live in Minnesota. My intent for the next six months or so is to relocate to either the Bay area, perhaps Seattle, or maybe even NYC since there are a lot more job opportunities out there. In passing, any advice on finding liveaboard slips in these locales is appreciated. Cheers!

Hi Johnny

Good to have you aboard - I still lurk much more than I participate. Lots of good information here.

Welcome Johnny, Seattle like most places has a shortage of liveaboard slips, but if you work at it you can find one. Slips go for $7-10+/ft/mo. The economy here is still pretty good, lot's of jobs in IT (Micro, etc), housing market is slow but not a disaster. Unbelievable opportunities for cruising. It rains once in a while here .
