firemanbob55 Deryk: I have a 37' Endeavour sloop that we have lived on for the last 4 years. I have a live aboard slip in down town Daytona. The vessel has had a total refit in 2004-2005 Including NEW diesel eng.and new 16,500 btu a/c unit. I'm asking $49,900 for the boat and the slip goes with it. Slip rent is less than $500.00 per month for everything.

ebs001 If you are looking for a marina to stay as a live aboard check out Skipper Bob's book "Marinas on the ICW". He lists almost every marina on the eastern seaboard, including all of Florida. In it he gives monthly rates, liveaboad fees and anyother fees. He also lists all amenities of the marina., shopping in the area. And the book is about $15. You can go to his website to get locations to buy his books.

Live-aboard along St. Johns'

We're looking for a live-aboard along the St. John's river (Florida). We like Lake George and Crescent Lake area.. but anywhere along the St John's is good.

Hubby (to-be) will be working in the Orlando/Ocala/Daytona area.. so the commute should be pretty good for him.

We're looking at purchasing a 72'.. hopefully there are some good docks around (Holly Bluff is an option!) just checking out other options in other areas!

Thanks for the input!

That seems pretty expensive for a marina. What facilities do they have there? I was looking to live aborad but at that rate I would rather pay a mortage.

At what ''rate / foot'' do you get a nice marina versus a ''trailer park''? I know this surely depends on location etc... Lets just say near Miami or other large cities in Florida.

Needing to find a LiveAboard Marina

We just read your note about the marina you live at.
It sounds just the type of place we are looking for.
We are at present living aboard in Madeira Beach but things are changing and not for the better.
We would realy appreciate any info you could give us on the marina ie location, rates restrictions etc
Thanking you in advance

Needing to find a LiveAboard Marina

I''m thinking of bringing my boat back to the Bradenton/St Pete area this spring. Does anyone know of a resonable place to keep a 37''er? The $500-$700+ at Twin Dolphin and Regatta Point are just too much. A dock behind someone''s house of condo would be fine. Anyone with any ideas?
