  12. How to know for certain whether marinas actually *do* or don't want liveaboards?

    Living Aboard
    As I've been researching different marinas in the DC/MD/VA area, I've been surprised by how ambiguous it can be as to whether or not living aboard is permitted. Sometimes it may say it in writing, and I had been assuming that if it was in writing, that's what the marina meant. However, others...

  16. Boarding Authority

    Politics, Current Affairs, Guns & HOT Topics
    It is my understanding that the U.S. Coast Guard, and the FBI, and perhaps any local law enforcement authority, may at their whim or "in the performance of their duties" board any boat in U.S. waters at any time for any reason without a warrant and without probable cause of wrongdoing. This...
  17. Size vs. Condition/Amenities?

    Hi there guys, I'm new here just getting back into sailing. I grew up lake hopping in Michigan on a little 17 foot daysailer, and the only thing bigger than that I have had was a Catalina 22. I'm sure this is the topic of a thousand threads but I'll be damned if I could find one. I now live...
