Living Aboard St. Petersburg, Florida

January 2002

St. Petersburg, Fl. - The St. Petersburg Municipal Marina has announced that effective January 1, 2002 there is a moratorium on renting slips to incoming long term liveaboard boats. According to the City of St. Petersburg Marina & Port Department, the restriction was put into effect because of a long term refurbishment of the facitities. The refurbishment program, which will include dock restoration, began October 1st and will last one year.

The marina is home to more than 600 boats, including approximately 100 liveaboards. According to the dockamasters, the refurbishments will
require the marina to move boats around, and with liveaboard boats that usually means disconnecting phone lines and cable TV, as well as moving
plants and other possessions from place to place. "We are going to have to put in temporary docks," said Joan , from the City of St. Petersburg
Marina & Port Dept. "We just don't have the dockspace." Although the marina is not accepting new liveaboard boats, it is not requiring liveaboard boats that are already at the marina to leave.
