VA Live Aboard Marinas

Will be relocating from Florida to Virginia in a couple of weeks. Looking for info on good live aboard marinas in the Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Newport News, and Hampton area. Also looking for one additional crewmember to make the trip. Any one need to get a little salt air in their lungs?

If you are looking at those areas because of no annual boat tax...forget it...Portsmouth and Norfolk just re-instated big boat taxes and Hampton is preparing to. Bummer. No place to hide anymore.
On theplus side...lots of nice boat slips should be freeing up!

I currently Live aboard at Ocean Marine in Portsmouth.... Looked recently at considering a change and Tidewater were not accepting new liveaboards, Ocean marine have a wait list the bottom of which looks like it will never see the light of day... I believe Hampton may be accepting Liveaboards - so don't forget to try there - around here the commute to work is all about the bottle necks of bridge traffic - so your commute will most likely dictate your
"ideal" marina. I live in Portsmouth and work in Norfolk -but there is a commuter ferry running every half hour across the Elizabeth river - I can walk both ends... perfect!

How bad is this boat tax in Va?
Any place to lodge complaints? They're chasing away spenders, when will they ever learn? Didn't they notice that tax receipts for the federal gov't are at record levels because of the tax cuts? No coincidence that Virginia turned left in the last election.

Down in Tidewater it is coming in at 50 cents per 100 of valuation.
10K boat is only 50 bucks but a hundred k cruiser is 500 annually.
Actually...they feel they have nothing to lose...since there is NOWHERE else you can keep a boat without the tax where there is not ice or hurricanes. It is just another way to grab some money from a small group of "rich people" .

Who/how is the valuation being computed?

That 50 cents for 100 valuation looks good from Ventura, here it's a 1% of value, for me that's $1,200 per year! I heard they are thinking of raising it, 'cause they know all boat owners are rich!

sidiag...they generally compute it on BUC or NADA value and you can dispute the valuation if you can prove your valuation is more correct. (i.e. if your bill of sale is for less etc.)

Ian...I did not realize CA had an annual tax...thought that was an east coast thing. The Norfolk area rates are 1/2 yours but elsewhere in the state they approach yours. It is all done county by county here.
