Salem/Beverly/Gloucester MA Liveaboard?

Hi everybody.

I have just learned that I may have an opportunity to move back to Boston's North Shore; and this might be a chance to move aboard full time.

I know we've got some members that currently live in the area; can anyone give me a rough idea what it might cost to park a 30-35' boat year round?, and any marina suggestions?

It's funny how the stars sometimes seem to line up just right....... cross your fingers for me.

Thanks, Fred

Good luck Fred... Keep us posted. Don't know any marinas that allow liveaboards in the Cape Ann area. Wish I could be more help.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hey. I grew up in Revere but now live in So Cal. Make sure to have some Kelly's for me!

Can't offer any help on the question though.

And if it's pizza you're into, check out Bianchi's on the boulevard near Revere Street. I took my wife there about 4 months ago and now she won't eat the crap they try to pass off as pizza here in So Cal.

Look up Doug Richie - he's on a mooring in Salem in the summer on the docks in the winter. He and his wife are on a Pearson (36?, Ketch). He's top notch, super nice guy, very,very serious sailor. He's been everywhere, so Salem Harbor probably isn't a bad place to live - if it was he'd have moved. We used to live-aboard at Ship Yard Quarters, in Chucktown (Boston) - not a bad place either.

DrB will become famous soon enough
Constitution Marina in Boston Harbor ....

Has Winter Dockage, but that's 30 or so nm (by boat) away from the North Shore area. Nothing in Marblehead area that I am aware of. Maybe Pickering Warf Marina in Salem.

Thanks All ............

Some great ideas.

DrB; I was thinking about Pickering Wharf, but I can only IMAGINE what it might cost. Will research, though.

wiseleyb; thanks, any idea how I might look Doug Richie up?, sounds like a good contact. Charlestown wouldn't be too far, because I wouldn't HAVE to sail to work in Salem, not too bad a commute. (Against the regular flow of commuters)

Punjabi: I like Lena's Pizza in Lynn, you can get your slice with a side of Sopranos, or even better Sam & Joes in DanversPort

Marrsy; I grew up in Lynn, on the Swampscott line. East Boston might not be bad, right on the Blue Line.

Dog, thanks for the crossed fingers ...

Constitution Marina, Boston Shipyard and a few others probably allow liveaboards, but they're in Boston Harbor proper, not Cape Ann or the North Shore.
