|Melrna||I hear you. Why I said I am nervous about the location. I have the same concerns. When I had up insurance and marina fees it is still comes out cheaper than taxes and insurance on a house. Depending on the house the savings can be significant. With my work schedule, I will be gone at least 3-4 days a week. So the liveaboard rule I can get around. I also have family down there as well. I am more concern with hurricanes as such but like everything else there are ways to handle that situation.|

One of the marinas I just talked to said I could stay up to 4 nights a week even without being a "liveaboard". I don't know. I guess I could just find a slip ... somewhere ... and then get the boat, and at the same time put myself on waiting lists to move the boat to where I really want it to be and then just do the best I can to get by.

I don't have any good advice about Florida or anything like that, but I wish you the best of luck in moving forward and getting your boat. It's a big step. I don't know about you but I am a little anxious about making the leap.

His very thick skull is denser than the rest of him, so he tends to float upside down.

Take a look at this. Might be a bit smaller than you're looking at, but I think it's nice.

|labatt||Melnra - Congrats on being so fortunate as to be able to pursue a dream! I recall speaking to you about it for a short bit at the One and Only First Annual Annapolis Boat Show Show Sailnet Get Together! (we were the ones with the Chinese food). Anyway, I just wanted to mention that I think you'll be hard pressed to find a Passport without teak decks, although you could always pull the decks off and glass them over, but then you might be opening up a pretty significant can of worms with other work. If you find a good source of "not on yachtworld" boats, please let me know! And yes, my boat is "sort of" for sale. In other words, since we're not buying the Hallberg-Rassy 53 that we thought we were going to get, "Pelican" is on the market but I'm not actively pushing to sell her.|
