Re: Seattle - I am looking for a liveaboard slip
I don't have a liveaboard slip, but for my normal slip Shilshole went from reporting a long waiting list to having a dozen 30' slips available in the period of a couple of weeks. Hopefully you have similar luck in getting a live aboard slip.
AGC is probably a more fun place to live aboard due to so many walking destinations being right there. A Catalina 27' can fit under all of the bridges (except Fremont) so getting out to the sound for an overnighter isn't a major hassle. I like being at Shilshole now, but also enjoyed being on Lake Union with my previous boat. Duck Dodge, Goose Bumps, and the dynamic scenery on the lake are major reasons to stay on Lake Union.
For some reason that I don't understand Lake Union also often has great sailing weather when Lake Washington is completely becalmed.
