Welcome to SailNet, and congratulations on the move!

When I was in SoCal some years ago, a number of brokers were keeping boats in Oxnard bacause it was relatively inexpensive, but there wasn't much happening in Oxnard the last time I was there. Wilmington, behind Terminal Island in LA, was always a good compromize of lower than average slip fees vs lots of work available nearby. If it was me, there, now, I'd head straight down to Ensenanda and take it from there.

Are we there yet?

When at the dock, I encourage family members that need to dispose of solids to use the bathrooms onshore, but the heads on the boat can be used to deposit liquids. I don't get into this with guests. Keeps the holding tank volume down and the tank can be managed easier, without solids, if I have to leave her partially filled when away for several days.

My sister once named the above practice the "walk of shame", since all know too precisely why you need to go ashore. My wife hates the phrase, but it stuck. All the kids, nieces, nephews, etc all use it. I had a half dozen of my daughter's friends aboard last week and they already knew the term.

"Walk of shame" huh? In college, that is what we called the girls walking home in the morning wearing the same clothes as the night before. We have a LA who is quite popular and we often see the same walk from his guests!

As a complete newbie who is planning (if all goes well), to purchase and live aboard by November, I LOVE the comments on these forums. Geez, I haven't even found my boat yet, and I've received a warm welcome and GREAT help! And - BONUS - I am such a wiseass/comic that it's nice to know that I may be tolerated or even welcome here! lol

Anyway, I look forward to living vicariously through you as you start YOUR adventure. Hopefully, I'll be just a few months behind you. YES, as I'll be living in the Boston area, WINTER should be fun! Does the C30 have an ice-breaker attachment? It's the boat I'm looking at - I'd hate to buy a boat and have to wait 6 months for sea trials! lol

Hey, LOVED your triatholon analogy - my wit and humor will be challenged to rise to a new level with you guys! Don't worry about the ladies - I'm told these boats are a chick magnet! Just get one drunk and when she wakes up 50 miles out to sea, tell her she'll have to work for passage! KIDDING - these days you can get sued just for joking.

Thanks and Take Air,
Jack

Rozz is right. We looked at San Diego marinas as an alternative to where we are, wanting to spend as little as possible on the marina so that we could spend more on the boat. There are some really reasonable marinas there for what you pay.

We settled for a marina in Wilmington. It is hand's-down the least expensive, coming in at $9 a foot. It is a more "rustic" marina, and we weren't sure about it at first, but we have fallen in love with the marina and the people. Down to earth and almost all are really friendly.

Good thing about a marina that is cheaper, is that the people there all know how to fix boats! We have learned tons about repair and maintenance.
