Hey everybody, Just wanted to pick your brain a little about the STX area. I am a commercial
Pilot and looking at getting transfered down to STX to fly. I was curious about living aboard
in the STX area. I lived on a sailboat many years ago on the St. Johns River in Jacksonville
, FL. This was MANY years ago.
I was wandering if it is possible to liveaboard
year round? Either by Mooring
, or in a slip? Would rather setup Mooring
to save money
. By the looks on Google Earth
it seems that the area around Christianstead is the only place I see boats anchored out. My work is going to be based out of the STX Airport
, so I would probably purchase
a car to drive back and forth on a daily basis.
, no wife...Just me... I have been researching this for about 6 months now, and I am boat shopping
to see what would be the best fit for my situation. At times I would like to pull anchor
and continue to explore the islands...But mainly after already situated in my job and a place to stay..
One of my main concerns is the Hurricane
Season.. Since I am a pilot, it would be hard to pick up anchor
south for that season.. I need to stay and work... is it possible to make it through the season there? Is there places on the Leeward side that are protected at all? I guess this would be closer to the airport
and the oil
refinery... Not sure if anybody does any kind of mooring on this side of the island...
Thanks in advanced... Looking forward to a new chapter in and around the USVI...
