Re: San Francisco cracking down on people living in boats
This is old news. Sausalito and the other municipalities surrounding Richardson Bay have been on this crusade since the sixties that I am personally aware of, and perhaps even before.
In the '60s when the farms and factories up the rivers were dumping poisons like DDT and heavy metals in large quantities into the waterways that fed into the bay, the dozen or so liveaboards in Richardson Bay were being hassled as the major polluters of SF Bay.
Of course, it was classic that the guy on the us$450,000.00 motor yacht was complaining about paying 8k a month for an apartment!
"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
