Liveaboard family of four in SD

Hi,
Just signed up for sailnet. We live on a Catalina 30 with our 2 year old and 4 month old in San Diego. We really enjoy the lifestyle and are learning as we go. I'd love to connect with other liveaboard families and others in the area.

Re: Liveaboard family of four in SD

Hi Julie,

My wife and I live in Vermont where the sailing season is way too short and the winters way too cold. We've visited SD and have talked about packing it in here and moving there to live aboard, sail all year, and enjoy the weather. Where are you guys? Are liveaboards restricted in most marinas?

I do remember the area behind a big hotel with lots of shops and restaurants that had gated docks.

Re: Liveaboard family of four in SD

We lived at Pier 32, which is very liveaboard friendly, but deep in the bay, then lived at Oceanside for about a year on a sublet and now were trying out mooring. Sounds crazy with little ones, but its not so bad because our boat is only 35 feet from the dinghy dock. The mooring location is amazing, right in down town, and its only $125/month. Great deal compared to the $1000 pier 32 charged for a family of four. There are plenty of live aboard options here, as long as you have at least a 35 foot boat and no more than two living on it. The year round sailing is definitely nice.
