I dug myself out of debt.
I got a job on the west side.
And I've learned that I'm not quite as keen now to travel the world and discover strange new toilets as I once was.
I am, however, still very keen on living on a boat, even if I'm working on land, and spending my weekends sailing the California Channel Islands.
Anyone liveaboard in MDR or the surrounding area? I'm working in venice now, and pondering getting a boat in the next few months, and if at all possible, a liveaboard slip.
I've not even picked out my boat yet. Chances are it will be something more appropriate for the coastal day sailing and occasional cruising I'll be doing most of, and not some ocean crossing vessle I'm just not ready to use at this point. I'm more concerned with having a hot water shower than with having a hull which can withstand being dropped on a reef 40 times in a row without failing. (eg: I'll be looking at catalinas, hunters and the like, as opposed to more well established, traditional designs)
Are liveaboard slips even available in our area? Is the application process straightforward, or is there something I should know before approaching marina managers, to help increase my odds of getting a liveaboard slip?
Other advice for a wouldbe liveaboard?
