Thanks for the updated information. A little update from me is that I didn't pull the trigger and I rent in Jersey City now. Let's just say OUCH! I could have financed quite the boat for what I am paying in rent. However, I did the right thing because I am being transferred to CA. Had I bought the boat, I'd probably be in a mess. The job pays the bills, so I gotta' go. It is expected that I'll be back in the NYC area in about 12 to 14 months. Hopefully then I will have the guts to finally buy the boat I want. If it wasn't for this stupid job....
These later posts will tell you about all I know. The only additional information I found was that some marinas kinda wanted to get to know you before you live aboard. From what I gather, they just want to run a good business and keep their clients happy. A cheap, troublesome or trashy tennant can become a big deal for them. If you are paying top $$$ for a slip, you don't want to wake up on Saturday with some derelict boat 'next door' and some bum hanging his panties out to dry on the boom. Makes sense to me, unless I'm the bum!
Good luck and keep us posted!
