Live-aboard in Ft. Lauderdale
Hello, I''m looking for a more affordable liveaboard slip in this area, if I''m reading the rate sheets correctly, It appears that they are running around $800 - $1200 per month for a 39 footer, I''m hoping to be around $500 OR less? Any idea''s? Thanks

When we left FTL, in Dec. of 2000, $500/Mo was about the minimum for legal liveaboard dockage. We were paying over $650/Mo for a nice spot (and 29'' boat).
