Mr Dog. I did read your post to the end. Not sure what your point is. I agree with your list of missing facts and possible scenarios involving OP. I considered those and others before responding intially. What is it you wish to discuss now? It appears that all is well for svshanell for now. Have a nice night.

Welcome ( better late then never) Do you get out and sail ( presuming its a blow boat your living on)...or do you pretty much have a dock condo?

What boat do you have...there are many others wanting your life style here or some form of it...You could be an inspiration to someone maybe ...

PS: FWIW...This is a great place and good people...as you learned...first time rant posters arnt received to well...wait till post # 3 to start that... ...we do get a few spam type posts...There is this one guy Giulietta that is notorious..and we cant keep him out no matter how hard we try...he just keeps photo shopping himself avoiding all attempts of spam blockers....any way welcome aboard...and watch out for guys like him...you will know recognize what im talking about if you hang around long enough...they are out there and they are watching us..

Looks like I got another three months. cool

The previous notice was sent to all liveaboards.

By new management I mean: A new General Manager took over the first of the year, 2008.

I have a written contract on file right now, due to renew in May. I did send a new one a few days ago.

Oh well the heat is off for a while.

Thanks for all the insightful comments.

About Me

My name is Carl

I liveaboard a 1973 Pearson 26 with two cats, Little Monster and Burley. Its tight sometimes.

Ive race the Pearson for the last 12 years, not so much these last two years. Ive been crewing with a friend.

I go out alot. Almost every weekend. Playing around with some chartplotting software Seaclear 2, AISMon, Chartview, still tring to figure how to coulple NEMA 0183 to the Autohelm. There is an interphase box I need. 075 I believe.

Ive tricked the pearson out with a CQR anchor on a bow fairlead and installed a homemade wind generator ( A 50 Knot wind storm did it in, Melted the windings, but it stayed together.) I have an Air-X on the way

Ive done some deliveries. ICW and Offshore. A Pilot House 60 Schooner and a Bristol 40.

All for Now

Svsashanell, glad you have some time to prepare, hope it makes all the difference. Was the change in policy only for liveaboards?

I think you could live on a Pearson 26, but I don't think they an actual head, are you installing one ?

Wild Magic

The 1973 Pearson indeed has a head with an intake, holding tank & pumpout.

I'm very much single, about 4 years from retirement and should have SS & PERS to keep me going. I also hope to ply my trade(surveyor), working as a pick-up consultant or GPS specialist, as I sail around. The boat's big enough for "some", equipment . . . if I choose. I also worked as a naturalist many years ago and my degree is in natural resources . . . naturally. I'm also a veteran, so I have some help their too(medical), which can follow me.

I expect to go the route of my past-brother who ceremoniously, pitched virtually all his wordly goods to live about 20+ years in a 16' scampy trailer . . . must be something about family blood.

In any case I expect to have very little when/if I make the actual jump to liveaboard-cruising. I have no interest in parking my butt in a marina.

My main concerns is how to provision myself and determining how long I can stay at anchor without venturing on the hard tack. I tend to be a loner, I like solitude and spend a lot of time contemplating. I hope liveaboard cruising agrees with me.
