Where are all the beautiful people?

Now you know I mean that in the broadest sense of the phrase: the good people, the friendly ones, the ones that made your life better because you met them.

Whether it be a cove, marina, island, city, country, etc tell me where you've found the largest concentration of fabulous folks?

Thanks. Almost there. Boat buyer in next month or two.

Re: Where are all the beautiful people?

This is an easy one for me. It was the Marina 4 winter live aboard community in Toronto. Best neighbours ever, and some very good friends too.

Constitution Marina in Boston in the winter and the Abacos in the Bahamas. Bunch of sexy-ass hippies sailing around the Bahamas man. Unbelievable.

Re: Where are all the beautiful people?

My answer will likely irritate the heck out of at least one forum member but I would be lying if I didn't say New York City. You asked.

Re: Where are all the beautiful people?

How do you think Will Rogers would answer that question?

Re: Where are all the beautiful people?

In 8 years we have found them from Miami to Maine to Mexico to Colombia to Jamaica to Trinidad to Antigua to the Azores to Portugal to Tunisia to Italy to Greece to Albania to Croatia to Turkey --

It is really up to you and your attitude not others. We have made friends everywhere we have been and continue to make them.

Well said, Chuck. It echoes our experience perfectly (except in a different hemisphere for the most part).

Re: Where are all the beautiful people?

It's amazing how cruising will allow you to get to know people you might not ever talk to in regular land life. We've had lovely days hanging out with folks off megayachts in the Bahamas, or little motorboats in Maine. We're bonded by the mutual feeling of Holy sh!t can you believe how lucky we are to be here right now?

Such talent! Amazing timing. Perfect phrasing.

Joe Cocker is good too.

Re: Where are all the beautiful people?

You are so totally dreaming!
In the real world people are only nice when they want something...usually money!
Take my advice avoid the friendly ones like the plague even if they are pretty! Even more so!
Sail away and consider yourself fortunate that you survived yet another onslaught. They all out there to g5rt us.. waiting! .. with their cute little ways...

Re: Where are all the beautiful people?

ive been at cape fear marina in wilmington nc for about a year doing a refit and the community of live aboards here is simply great everyone gets together on the weekends and grill out and have drinks and swap stories also everyone is quick to help each other out without question and the marina it self is very live aboard friendly definitely worth the trip up the cape fear river
