You should be aware that most moorings on St. John are part of the Virgin Islands National Park. While the fee is $15.00 a night, you are limited to no more than 7 consecutive days in one bay and a maximum of 30 days per YEAR in the park. Not really a liveaboard location as it is a National Park... but is a great place to visit.
I prefer a sailboat to a motorboat, and it is my belief that boat sailing is a finer, more difficult, and sturdier art than running a motor.

That all blew over and was cancelled.

Re: Living Aboard in the Caribbean

I'm looking for marina on St. Thomas. Anchoring/mooring not an option. Where is the most cruiser-friendly place?
