Charlietown, hands down...... the bay is great place to sail a Cat27. It is a tourist town and dock rates are high during the season, off season very affordable..... if you use a mooring ball, your only a ten minute dingy ride to the CG station. Also, folks really appreciate coasties in this town.... come on down....

Have you thought about St Augustine, FL? We looked there last year and it was very convenient. They don't have mooring balls, but you can anchor in the bay. The city marina offers use of their dinghy dock, laundry and showers for a small monthly fee. Just another option.

Good Luck!!!
I don't know how it is on the east coast, but finding live-aboard space is getting tougher on the west coast.

There are a bunch of 30' slips open in shilshole (Seattle) probably close to $10 a foot. Further north in Bellingham it's very easy to snag a sublease at squalicum for a 30' $185 and a very short walk to the costie station - Pretty mild weather as well. No problam being a liveaboard in squalicum as long as you keep your house-plants and such off the dock.

Charleston, SC wasn't very live aboard friendly when I was there, can't imagine it is any better now.
This isn't quite true. Military members are given a weight allowance based on Rank and if they have dependants. If you exceed the weight allowance, you pay out of your pocket. People I've talked to recommended to make your own arrangements, and settle the amount in the travel claim if your total household and boat weight fall within given limits. Military members don't get any extra leave time if they want to sail the boat themselves, it is our own problem to deal with so selling the boat is definitely an option.

Not sure about liveaboard slip availablilty in Galveston, but you will be in a prime area to find a larger boat if you choose. There's some folks on a Yahoo group that have some good knowledge on Galveston, that should be replying to your friend's request there for info.

Best of luck on your move.

Single E-4, 6000lbs (boat & non-roadworthy trailer), 8000 miles.. didn't cost me a cent.. Your HHG people can "work" with you on it.. if they "can't" then they are just having a bad day, or got a bad haircut and are taking out their frustrations on you. You should come back the next day with a box of donuts and try again.

Thanks everyone....I've been assigned- to Galveston

I wanted to thank everyone for their help. I'm going to post a new thread regarding where the best place to keep a boat is....Kemah, Texas City, or Galveston??? Cost vs sheltered from hurricanes vs amenities?
