Re: Living Aboard in Vancouver ?

There's a definite possibility that perhaps my girl friend and I might be " staying aboard" Now and then for undefined weekly amount of time at a North van marina. I too would love to get together
With like minded peps.


Hope this was vague enough not to alert the marina on our
Living situation. : -)

Re: Living Aboard in Vancouver ?

Had a great liveaboard slip on the north side of False Creek just past Sweeney's Cooperage... $5/ month, free power, a little noisey from the sawmills and industrial plants ashore but great access to the city... oops! Wrong Century! As I recall there were many derelicts anchored or run aground at the head of the inlet. In those days there was a vibrant live aboard community not only in False Creek but also across from Deadman's Island in Stanley Park before RVYC expanded their facilities. No one bothered you and livin' was easy... miss those days (and nights)... cheers, Capt Phil

Re: Living Aboard in Vancouver ?

Hey guys. Good to see some of you here. I'm also in Vancouver. I'd be interested in meeting you a few of you before I leave to LA on the 5th to buy my boat if you're game.

Jon

Dang. Missed it I guess. I leave on the 5th of January to buy my boat in MDR and sail off, so I probably won't get the chance to meet any of you. Perhaps when I come back...

We are off visiting family until the 27th, but we could maybe get together between then and New Years if anyone else is interested. We might be out sailing for New Years...

It sounds like lots of interest in another meet up. We should also put a post in the own group.... And a meet up mid jan in order to break up that miserable month. I'm so interested in seeing other peoples set ups down below!

Re: Living Aboard in Vancouver ?

Just wondering if the get together happened and if any future ones are planned?

Re: Living Aboard in Vancouver ?

I'm interested in hearing too. We're on the Island but we might come over if the timing worked. We were in False Creek during the boat show but I forgot all about this thread until now.
