  1. Cruising & Liveaboard Forum
    My story is similar to many but I've noticed a trend over the last 10 years that I believe is now crippling, in many places, the very essence of this sport and industry. The pressure put on marinas from the recent increase in homelessness. After spending time working on the boat, my wife and I...

    After a few years of planning I'm looking into getting a sailboat sometime in the near future. However I've called around and visited several marinas to see what the slip fees are. Most of them were sold out or had long waiting lists. Boat slips seem to be in short supply and high demand here in...
  3. Florida - Eastern
    I will be in the Fort Lauderdale/Deerfield Beach area in October. Are there any specific Marinas (possible liveaboard locations) I should check out? I would also like to visit a boat dealer or two in the area (I'm looking for a 30'+ sailboat to liveaboard and travel up and down the eastern...

    Hi. Need to find a place to keep my first boat (40ft with 5 ft draft). We live in Raleigh so need to consider the "commute" as well as sailing area, marina, amenities, service, etc. Will have two young kids (9 & 11yo) with us some of the time so would like a marina with a pool but not...
  5. 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...

    I just found out that I may be moving in the fall to Princeton, NJ for work. We own a 22' swing keel, trailerable sailboat (Laguna Windrose) and we have been sailing for the past several years on a large lake in KY where we keep it in a marina all year. Although I am happy to move this fall, I...
  8. Chesapeake Bay
    I was a liveaboard for a few years, and so I've been docked at BMC's Harborview location because of the amenities. I love it there, but as I'm no longer living aboard, I'd prefer to move it somewhere cheaper. The thing is, I am having trouble parting with the pool. Does anyone have...

    Hi. I'm just joining SailNet and am posting this thread because I'm selling my house in Atlanta (14 years landlocked!!!), moving back to SoCal (lived in Long Beach for a long time), and moving aboard a sailboat (sailed since I was a kid in Biloxi and lived on a 26' boat for a while when I was...
