My boat is currently in Massachusetts
, where for most of us there is only a 6-month season. Though in the past I have lived aboard year-round, it can be a long cold winter and you don't get out much on the boat because you get so tied down with extra dock
lines, power cords, tarps, etc.
I don't know what you do for a living, but I would suggest that in this economic climate that will determine where you end up with the boat. At least in my experience, it is better to locate the job first, and then figure out how you can work your boating
