Re: 1984 40' Burn Craft Motor Yacht for live aboard

Small birds fly over RV's = small poo. Big birds hang out at marinas = big poo.

Most boats at a marina are covered in big bird poo.

Do not discount the bird droppings on a boat that is not moving.

I would guess that to be true depending on where you are. We are at a marina in Bradenton Fl. And the birds have not been a problem. ��Q

Re: 1984 40' Burn Craft Motor Yacht for live aboard

Bradenton I believe is a part of Florida that is called the 'Sun Coast'. About 60 miles north I am at a part of Florida called the 'Nature Coast'. I wonder if it is because we have a ton of birds here?...probably.

Pelicans will roost on the edge of the roof and poo on any boat that is bigger and sticks out past the roof.

I will agree not all marinas have a bird problem. I was just at Palm Coast Marina and there is no birds like on the Nature coast. I have seen pelicans but no comurants (sp) or anhingas at the Palm Coast Marina. On the Nature coast those birds are all over the place.

Oh that would not be fun at all. I have not had any problems with Birds at all. I must check with our Dock master.

Re: 1984 40' Burn Craft Motor Yacht for live aboard

Sorry...hit the wrong button.

I can see the very viable money savings by living on a boat. I just checked prices at the Daytona Florida marinas. They will cost as little as $9/ft. Plus $90 for full time per month. That means you can stay in marina for about $500/month for a 40' boat.

And RV Park will be about the same cost, maybe a bit less. I see an annual RV Park cost $5,500/year so it is a just bit less expensive.

Now in north Florida RV Parks are more like $400/mo.

Too bad. I knew Charlie Burns personally. During this time he built houseboats, 37' Express's and 37 Fly Bridge sedans, 40' and 46' diesel aft cabin motoryachts. All were very beamy with tons of room inside. They were not bad boats, acutally. He built in Muscle Shoals, AL. I haven't seen him in 30 years.
