$480 a month for liveaboard? That's cheap. Oh wait you would have to pay me $800 a month to live in Florida though so it kind of makes up the difference. Just kidding. PS you totally stole my priceless idea.

Whats so bad with Florida?
I mean take away the Hurricanes, the 115 hot humid summer days, the high cost of boat insurance and the no-see-ums and you have a really nice place

Awe, come on guys. Florida is great 10 months out of the year. The temp today was 89 degrees wind out of the SE at 13 which keeps the bugs away from the boat..

Now..those other two months.......

$9.00 ft per month dockage
$180 a month live aboard fee including electricity
rum extra...

Well I had forgotten I had posted this question. Since then I have bought a 1988 Cal 39. So far I have mooring/launch - $1750, winter haul/wash/storage - $2000, insurance $900. As a new owner am still buying "stuff", but would say that I would almost spend as much doing something else. I expect to spend about $200 for fuel. Guess I could add things like food (like Ionly eat when on the boat), suncreen, etc.

I don't think Newport has anything to do with liquor as when I dropped the hook there last month I think I only drank 2. But then who really needs a reason and I probably drink less during the day because I'm on the water than I would sitting around watching football.

Rough crowd here... When you think of it, Florida doesn't have earthquakes, it doesn't flood every time it rains, no Interstate 5 traffic from hell, smog and over-priced real estate.

Seriously I am looking at how cheap it is to liveaboard down there, unbelievable. Maybe Florida is pretty sweet. What about the rest of the Southeast and Gulf Coast? How pricey is that?

florida is nice. good weather year round. but when it comes to rent. forget it. but it sounds like its expensive to live inside a sailboat isnt it? the insurance ( which if u live in a condo or house same things but more), to get to a harbor and use there electricity, and how much does it cost to pump out the toilets? i want to live in a boat but want to pay alot less then rent. $700 a month 1bd
