Southern California waterfront is super pricey; not a lot of ways around that one. It sucks because it's a wonderful area, just from the nature angle. But the marinas, costs, and regulations make it kind of crummy.

I was thinking you are junior at a regional. Have you looked at Oceanside?

If it's about saving shekels you might consider an RV in a parking lot. No kidding! You'll grow to hate a mooring. Damp clothes, the F-ing dinghy to shore then to the ground transpo. Everything, and I mean everything, will be centered around the dinghy. Motor quit and you woke up late for a 2 hour show...too bad. Worried about secured dinghy space or frayed painter or whatever...too bad. Too much to deal with. If you wrote your schedule it would be different but you are only the gear monkey.

You aren't a sailor, you are a pilot looking to save money. What I mean is you are considering a habitat close to base and a mooring just won't do as you intend. If you think having a boat in Sandy Eggo carries a wow factor with chicks, fuggedaboufdit, everyone in SD has access to the water. And it's bigger than what you have.

Marine is hardly more regulated than Part 121 aviation. Our man certainly should understand the expense associated with regulation. It's the logistics which kills this plan.

Re: Moor and Live-aboard in San Diego

Great site!

Looking to possibly move out to San Diego and live aboard (again) during a 3-year Naturopathic Doctor program I might be starting Sept 2017 using my post 9/11 GI Bill - used to live on a small Coronado 25 at the Railway Marina in Port Orchard, WA for less than $300/month with full services, a nice parking lot, friendly/helpful Harbor Master, and walking distance to the great little town...

PS Appreciate any advice on where & how to get on any San Diego harbor or moorage waiting lists - have boat...can live aboard whenever ;>}
