I'm not sure what the issue is, but liveaboards are an issue out here. I don't remember this problem on the west coast. I live in Hampton Roads and am looking at a job up in DC. I figured I'd take my 35 up and find a marina to stay in for a year or so, staying there during the week and coming home (or sailing) on the weekends. No dice. Every time I mention sleeping on the boat the gate closes. "No Liveaboards Allowed." I really don't get it. Bottom line, DO YOUR HOMEWORK. There are a lot of marinas here, there are also a lot of boats. Coincidentally, there are a lot of boats for sale, too. In any case, make sure you can find a marina that allows liveaboards AND has open slips.
