Re: Boat as primary home

Hi MikeinLA. Why power boats? Well, I can't say for sure since I know nothing about sailing but I'm open to the idea. I just looking around for something comfy and affordable
And anyways I won't be taking it out of the marina too often

Hi forsailbyowner. Constant movement is not a bad idea. I could do that at first while I get a slip

Re: Boat as primary home

Hi Capt Phil. Is like you know exactly what I'm looking for. Close to SD airport, transportation, the possibility of slips open, and some marina names.
Can't thank you enough for the info

Re: Boat as primary home

I've lived aboard an older Chris on lake Mead in Las Vegas Bay Marina andseveral others across the country New York to Chicago
it's awesome, good security and good neighbors alert and aware
and able and talk about serenity! Get a Real boat an older yacht that has
been loved and love it, it will love you back!

Re: Boat as primary home

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here and asking questions. I left the SD area in the 70s and don't know what's going on there now. Had a home six miles from the border in Chula Vista. The marina wasn't there yet.
The SD area is nice and I've visited FL and lived near Pensacola. Totally different. FL is very, very warm and humid in the summer. The land is flat. I suspect that boaters are accepted more in FL because there are many more places for boaters to go with sheltered water and it is more or less a historic way of life. The proposition of hurricanes doesn't make it too welcoming though.
Good luck in whatever choice you make.
kind regards,

Re: Boat as primary home

I am a female live aboard in South Florida. Born & raised!! Enough of the F-ing Florida bashing!! DONE WITH IT!! I have been perfectly safe & sound!! Jeezzzz, give us a break!! Florida is safe. & I'm never harassed ( except by forum readers)!! Just as I'm sure every where else is, if you use COMMON SENSE!! Damn- enough already!! Stay away from SE Florida if it's that bad for you.
I hardly ever post & you're biased opinions are why. This should also answer why some females don't speak up. ARGHHHH!!!!
