vega1860 More than once I have heard "Floating trailer park" as a description of a marina. Unfortunately, some live-aboards do nothing to disabuse that analogy.

Not sure about the legal aspect but there are several unflattering parallels that leap to mind.

On a more serious note, it's highly unlikely that there is any legal recourse. There may be a faint hope if your docking agreement specifically states that you are leasing the slip with the specific intention of living there and if the boat is your primary residence.

If that marina is indeed your only docking option it may be worth trying to fight the increase, but realistically, the legal fees are likely to far exceed the cost of any increase in slip fees.

If you are not happy, the great thing about a boat is that you really can just pick up and move.

Good Luck !

sailingdog I don't believe that any laws address the maximum increases in marina fees....

huguley3 Where I am the marina residents are barely second class citizens. I would guess I have about the same rights as someone renting a hotel room.

CaptainForce Certainly they are the same in the comparison of,-You pay management by the timt interval for the space. There are more adjustments to the fee,-i.e. LOA, number of utility cords, liveaboard fee. I don't think I'm interpreting or answering the "successful legal" intent of your question. Are you speaking of eviction? ...specific tenant rights?
