Live Aboard in Connecticut

Just kind of thinking out loud, but there may be a job offer for me in Connecticut. It would be south of Hartford, so does anyone have any recommendations for a liveaboard marina in say New Haven to New London Area? I don't know a lot about the area, and just trying to figure out potential costs. I don't need much in the way of facilities, just really bath house, and being open year round. I would not be opposed to switching to a different marina if a good summer spot is perhaps not open year round. I am interested in lower cost and decent protection.

You may want to check with Brewers Pilots Point in Westbrook, CT (halfway between New Haven and New London). They have three yards within the marina: South, East and North (it's big) and I think one of the yards allows liveaboards.

Re: Live Aboard in Connecticut

About a million years ago, our family new a fella that lived aboard his boat at Seaport Marine in Mystic. In the winter, he actually lived aboard up on the hard and inside storage. Unheard of today. It was a bit of a working yard. Shot in the dark for you now.

It would be pushing 40 years ago and the guy would have been in his 70s then. Probably born in the late 1800s. The guy wore a suit and tie every day of his life. He would remove the tie, if he was doing chores. I remember he had venetian style blinds on every port and cabin light on his boat. Totally old school. It was nice to have something remind me of this fella. Thanks.

Re: Live Aboard in Connecticut

Well I have family there, and possibly a job offer, making more than twice what I am making now. CT is beautiful, expensive but you know with the easy access to NYC it is the price of entry. Plus it is in very nice sailing grounds, some of the best. But I can't see it would be that much more than elsewhere in the region. I have been looking at living in Liberty Marina or Lincoln Harbor in order to work in Manhattan/New Jersey. But the sailing grounds there are not the best, too busy with commercial traffic, though it is fun to sail the harbor on occasion. At least CT woudl be easier access to some of my family. I need to live within an hour and a half my where I am currently for the next several years. Then I may wander off.

Strange to make job decisions based on where sailing is better, but you have to put your priorities in order!

Re: Live Aboard in Connecticut

Personally, I think the further East you keep your boat the better. I grew up sailing LIS.
