Re: Thinking of creating a liveaboard marina on BC Coast
Unless you can build a breakwater for a great deal less than anywhere else on the planet, even 1200 slips aren't going to do much to pay that expense back in a timely manner.
As for privacy barriers in between, I wouldn't put my boat in a slip with walls on both sides. It would be like living in a box.
It's always nice to see people thinking of adding a marina, especially a live aboard marina, instead of closing them for a condo/private slip situation, but you are going to have to do a lot more research to see if your idea can pan out.
