I just renewed mine. First they said my license had been suspended 6 years ago! I called Albany and they said it had not. So I just went back to another one, no problems there. I had no problem only listing a PO box to be put on the DL, so that is what I did. I did have to give them a physical address though. I don't know if they would accept a Marina or not for that as I am not yet living aboard. (not for long now at all) I think that is cool, that they accepted Slip number as an apartment. We will soon see how New York goes.

+1 on Castle Harbor. I used to play music there for some outdoor events and there were lots of live-a-boards there.

There are liveaboards at the Anchorage Marina on Boston St. in Canton. The cost through the marina is fair, but a lower cost is often available if you rent from an individual slip owner. A large number of the slips there are privately owned.

They usually say its because you use more electricity, water, other resources than people who just store their boats there and visit on occasional weekends. That may not necessarily be *true* but its the rationale we've seen in most places.

On Kent Island northwest of the Narrows is Castle Harbor. They accept liveaboards.

Hi Gary, yes, we are! and thanx! We have a huge list of crappy little errands to do (darn, land life sure is complicated!) Here's the story of the last leg of our journey: Life Afloat Archives

Brian: Agree - I should have mentioned that they wanted to see a copy of our insurance in addition to our respectable seamanlike boat & smiling faces.

Eryka,

Are you back in Chesapeake Bay? If so, welcome back.
