The moorings off of Shelter Island, affectionately known as "Rock and Roll", can often be rented monthly under $100. Check with the mooring office mentioned previously. Not very good for convenience, but cheaper than the marina slips or Ensenada. La Salina should be inspected before taking your boat there, if you catch my drift.

Hi Everyone,

A note to introduce myself. I am looking to buy another boat and live aboard her. I read your comments with great interest. I lived in SD years ago and loved it there. Been traveling a lot since then, but would love to go back. I had a 34' but lost it and the property and the horses, etc when I divorced my wife of 27 years. Took a pretty good beating there. Probably cheaper to keep her, but would rather be alone than miserable. Anyway, starting over and before I buy another hole in the water thought I would research the cost of living aboard. Seems like it will not be as great a deal as I thought. Although I intend on making trips to Hawaii and back during the right season for it. Still, have to pay for the slip whether I am there or not so I want something reasonable. I am retired so I don't care about airports or any of that stuff. I do care about having places to get the repair materials I am sure to need. Also, trust worthy repair places would be nice. Corpseman (the name is a play on navy medics)

Keeping a boat in SF and getting repairs is cheaper than in San Diego, and every marina has a waiting list in SD. Slips can many times be had at the Sun Road Marina on Harbor Island (very close to the airport), but you will pay for that slip!...that's the reason slips can be had there. Owning a boat in SD is not a poor man's sport anymore. There are a couple of new marinas in the Chula Vista area of SD, and your best chance to get a slip will probably be there...but it's a long way to get to the ocean.
