Are there any live aboards who are residing in Virginia Beach/Norfolk for most of the year? If so, do you have an estimate for what electricity would cost on average per month for a 38' to 40' sailboat if you are using air-conditioning? We've been told the electric
company has a monopoly in that area and charges an arm and a leg. Our apartment dwelling friends were paying 300 a month and up for less than 1000 sqft apt. Maybe they turned it into a freezer
We've been looking into a couple of marinas
near Little Creek/Fort Story that state they are live aboard friendly. Where do you stay and how do you like it? Is there a marina we should avoid? We'll get an opportunity to check them out ourselves in a few months when we move and aren't planning to live aboard for a bit since we're still looking for a boat we like.
For anyone not in the area... Is it common for a marina to provide an estimate on average electric
bills? We re brand new to this, so please forgive me if these are dumb questions.
Any thoughts are welcome.
