Re: Thinking about living aboard NYC area

welcome Greg.

I wouldnt worry about security in a marina with parking and a fence. Most of the boaters keep an eye on things.

Stay motivated! You can do it.

Re: Thinking about living aboard NYC area

A couple of other things to consider:

- What will you do fro water on the boat? Most marinas shut off the dock water to prevent freezing.

- What will you do for pump out?

- You will need to survey all your plumbing to see what's at risk of freezing. Even with your living space heated, you'll need to be sure all your pipes and fittings are inside the heating envelope.

- Does the marina leave dock power turned on over the winter?

- Does the marina allow on-board space heaters? I know mine does not, and personally I'm glad for it. If someone overloads an extension cord and starts a fire, they will likely take out all of us, not just themselves.
