c2csailor- I think you may have the two marinas mixed up. Ala Wai is state run and is in terrible condition(by Waikiki). We just left Keehi Marina (near airport and in industrial area) and the security there is great(electronic keypad gates, 24 hr security) and there is a large group of nice liveaboards that look out for one another. Keehi marina is run by the Keehi boat yard; we had them unstep the mast and haul the boat in preparation for shipping and they did a very professional job, although not cheap. Ala Wai boatyard on the other hand did a really lousy job pressure washing the hull when we had the survey, and be very careful if you use a credit card there... The big drawback to Keehi is that it is at the end of the runway for Honolulu Intl. airport, those 747's make enough noise on take off to rattle your teeth, they say you get used to it but they didn't say how long it takes:-)). Just out in the channel by Keehi is a large moorage area, not sure who runs it but there are lot's of liveaboards there. Ko'olina is reportedly very nice, not sure of the liveaboard reg's though. By the way, if you are at Keehi, walk out the parking lot gate and down the steet about 150' to the La Mariana Sailing Club restaurant, it's a great place with excellent food and a real old Hawaii feel to it.

I didn't see a boat any younger than 30yrs and they all looked like salvage or boat auction.
Hawaii the rip off state when it comes to Liveaboard marinas. People steal
too like the man says. Isn't that some ****.
Why do people have to steal. If they would chop their hands off they would stop that stuff.

Keehi is NOT nice. There is a group of people that actually sail their boats there but it's mostly iceheads drugging it in the parking lot. Not safe or comfortable

Sounds like things have changed since '07 when this thread started:-))
