Greetings and welcome aboard akoutdoors, girlfriend & dog.
I my experience, FTL is a fairlty expensive place to live. I don;t think there's anywhere "cheap" to moor long-term, anywhere in mainland S. Florida.

As always Gord is spot on! Los Olas is the only mooring I know of and the are $30. per day. If you are willing to be farther north, Stuart, and or Vero, fit your qualifications

Assuming you are in a monohull drawing a reasonable amount [less than 7'] there are options available on both Isle of Venice and Hendricks Isle for renting live aboard slips. Inexpensive is relative to the market and the dog may present an issue at some locations. Slips will go for upwards of $600/month I'm guessing for that size. It also depends if you will sign for an annual slip or are just looking for weekly or monthly. Lots of slips available this time of year.

Private liveaboard slips can be had for $450.00, but not in the Las Olas, Hendrick Isle or Isle of Venice area, but rather North Fork of the New River.

If you have clearance to pass under the I-95 bridge (55'MLW) you can reach Marina Bay Resort up the New River and find a reasonable monthy rate. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

Summer rates at Marina Bay are $0.85/Ft - over $1,000/month for a 36 footer.
I know, everything's relative, but not exactly “cheap”.

AFAIK Hollywood discourages liveaboards. Their policy might have changed but some years ago they were very particular.

When we arrived at the Las Olas moorings in 2003 all were taken; we tried anchoring but when the tide turned I wasn't comfortable to stay the night and we docked at Bahia Mar for $2.30 per foot per day. That is excl. power and parking space. IMO, these rates are beyond ridiculous.

We were there just a couple of days ago: only 1 boat at a mooring at Las Olas. Looks like the economy is taking care of over crowding efficiently.

rates in Ft Pierce are $14 per foot per month with a long term contract.

cheers,
Nick.
