I am a newbie here. One of the reasons I joined was to ask if anyone has any "inside information" about living aboard
in LaConner, Anacortes, Bellingham area. We have frequented LaConner and Anacortes as guests in our sailboat years ago. We leased a slip in Everett, WA for years, again as guests.
I'm mainly interested in the attitudes and friendliness of the staff. I just read an article about Shilshole in Seattle
where the author said that it was live aboard unfriendly.
Anacortes (Cap Sante) has just begun accepting live aboards on a pilot program. That has me a bit worried because if the "pilot program" doesn't seem like it's working they will revert to the no live aboard rules. There is a great shortage of alternatives. Most other marinas
in the area have a 3 year waiting list. Yikes! LaConner, as of this moment, is not accepting any new applications.
