$1,000 a month is more than enough for slip rent and still have a couple hundred left for booze at the city marina.

I you anchor out, there is not a lot of sheltered locations.

Given the relative shallow depths in the Keys, I would imagine you could dive to inspect. I have always wondered about mooring balls in places that they are not pulled annually. One place I am looking at in New York, on the Hudson river pulls them every year. The harbor master inspects it before being dropped.

Re: Liveaboard in Key West?

you would need to chat with whoever set the mooring ball or perhaps who ever has control over it.

Personally I never use a mooring ball unless I know how and when it was set. My vessel means that much to me and I do hope yours does too

Re: Liveaboard in Key West?

No argument from me, Owl. This kind of thing began in Maryland three decades ago, it is significantly worse at this point and all those miniscule fees have escalated at 10 times the rate of inflation. Some states now have undertaken measures to tax live-aboards in the same manner as someone living ashore. Like I said earlier, this will only get worse. Governments have screwed up every enterprise they've become involved in. Recreational boating will soon be something that the average person can no longer afford.

Thanks again,

Gary

Re: Liveaboard in Key West?

Gary - thats exactly my concern with these "well run" city mooring fields. Cities, counties, and other municipalities should *NOT* be using their natural resources as profit centers to cover for profligate spending in other areas, or subsidizing their citizens in other ways. Its not the city of Marathon citizens that own the waterways...its the STATE OF FLORIDA.

This is bordering on a political thread now...but I've always wondered why people get so wound up about gov't waste at a national level. The worst offenders and the most corruption is local. The worst is "legal" corruption like some of these cities can get away with. 24 hour obscene parking charges on public beaches or areas of attraction...mooring fields where you used to be able to anchor, ridiculous fees to enter county or city parks...lexus lanes on public interstate systems! Sheesh...you gotta be rich to leave your hovel nowadays.
