My family(wife and 2 sons ages 4 and 8)is planning to relocate to the Keys to liveaboard a catamaran. Any suggestions from other families living aboard? Looking for a quiet place close to library, school, park, etc.
Thanks,

Brian

Brian,
There are only a few schools, libraries, and parks in the Keys. You should focus on the Key Largo, Marathon, or Key West areas. Do you plan to live on the hook or at dock?

Can anyone adise me on how practicle a 12v reefer is to use as a live-aboard situation. I am considering installing a small 110v/ac reefer for dockside use but obvious space considerations are considerable. Advice?

Brian,
In the upper keys ( key largo and Plantation Key) there are a couple of places to consider. Port Largo Marina has some spaces for Liveaboards-close to a nice park/pool/kid center and about 3-4 miles from school. In Plantation Key there is Plantation Yacht harbor, has a nice park-pool-skatepark for the kids and about 2-3 miles from school. there are other places close by each as well.
