Catalina Liveaboards

Me and the wife will be moving aboard and out to Catalina Island this coming October. So far, this looks to be a fairly user-friendly environment; are there any suprises we should expect/plan for?

How common/severe are the Santa Anna conditions out there? Is it best just to spend the winter at Cat Harbor?

Thanks in advance

I'm from the East Coast so can't help - don't know what effect the santa anna winds have - try contacking a marina or yaught club near where you will be - don't mention living aboard - mention you'll be cruising - maybe they could provide specifics. But in general I'd assume you would experince surprises coming to liveaboards.

We have just moved to catalina and are on a mooring in Avalon. Great deal - buy 2 nights, get 5 free. Very friendly atmosphere. The weather can kick up but you are able to move to more sheltered areas of the harbor. Anchorage does not look so cozy. Cat harbor is the best alternative in a bad Santa Ana and for anchoring in general. I love Cat Harbor and it's solitude. But you may want a little more "town" at times. Other than cruise ships days (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) it is nice and quiet here in the winter with lots of friendly locals living on land or on their boats. If you want recommendations for great mechanics, best local pubs and a fabulous pedicure, just let me know.
