Sounds close to how I did it. Now set a date. Say July 1, 2015? Setting a date makes your dream a lot closer. Good luck!

How bad do you want it?

What will you give up to get it?

Good luck!

You have no idea! That statement has been running through my head for the last year and a half. I'm working on paying off all my debt right now. Crappy time to sell a house but I'm working on that also. A couple more years and I will definitely be moving on. I'll need to get some experience first but I WILL be moving on...

How about other places around the world?

I agree with all of the above Aaron but I'd have to say that clean boat/current reg./anchor light but especially "move every couple of weeks" is probably the best way to avoid any "Imperial entanglements"....I do the best I can and have kept three boats in the same spot for 3-4 years in Sarasota bay...I have been fined once for no anchor light...and forced to move once when I allowed my boat to get too close to some residences when there was a 300 foot ordinance(that ordinance got canned a while back....for now)...but I am learning...got lucky once when the boat slid a few hundred yards...when I did not have enough ground tackle...It is a learning curve especially when you don't live on the boat but I live very close by...It's the only way I could have gotten to this juncture..Now I have a 40-footer and I have learned alot along the way where I am cautiously confident in my abilities to keep her and myself out of trouble...

Great point. Appearances can say alot, even if it isn't true.

Re: Question about liveaboard/anchoring regulations

Well. Fortunately...the cities/municiplaties always end up pissing off some guy in a nice boat with some money in the bank who ain't afraid to lawyer up and whatever regulation ordinance that "got passed' locally usually goes by the wayside pretty quick..I seen it happen in Naples and Sarasota and in Bradenton...I appreciate those guys...I also appreciate Southwinds and Seven Seas Crusing ASSN and some of the higher-ups at Boat US I think also knows the score as well and probably help things to not get carried away...but on the whole things are going to continue to get tougher for boaters on a budget in Florida I have a feeling...
