If the goal is just to try and cover the costs of keeping a boat in the VI's there is another option you may wish to consider. With the high cost of land based housing I know of more than a few folks who "rent" their stationary boats as a floating housing unit. Each participant has the opportunity to gain from the arraingement. If you wish to have you vessel in a marina the fees and obviously rent would need to be higher to cover costs. On a mooring ball the fees would be much lower to break even. The person living aboard is there all the time to keep an eye on things and maintain the systems. You can put as many or as few restrictions on the use of your vessel and how normal expenses are covered. As with any rental situation the person doing the renting can make things work out well or not so well,

Good Luck!!!

Thanks for all the opinion and advice. I think I'll scrap that idea as being 'not one of my better ones' and make other plans. If we decide to do the trip, then she'll go on the hard down there but in all likelihood, we'll try and get some good mileage in up north during the season. Perhaps Newfoundland?

Again, thanks for all the comments - consider me cured!
