Exclamation Checking In

Greetings all from (sometimes) sunny California. Just joined this group and hope to learn a lot - I'm tired of always learning the hard way.

I've been sailing since I was about four years old. Six years ago I bought my last boat: an Endeavour 43 Ketch. I cruised the coast of California for 6 months or so and made a lot of discoveries - mostly about the boat and some about my personal life. I've lived aboard since I bought her.

I'm currently docked in Channel Islands Harbor, looking for: a sailorette or a job, which ever comes first. If a sailorette is found, we would soon be off cruising. If a job is found, then I continue to build the cruising kitty.

Thomas

Welcome Thomas. Are liveaboards welcome there ? How much for slips ? We are big fans of (almost always) sunny southern cal.

Welcome aboard Thomas.

Good luck in finding a sailorette. I hope to find myself one soon.

I am moving back to California this late summer. And start working on my 1973 Catalina 27. That is tied up at Moss Landing, California.

Hope to hear form you soon?

Bout time Thomas
Hey K, He used to be on B dock too.
Thomas, you forgot to mention the requirements. She must be tall enough to reach your mainsail "Take a look for MOB lesson learned easy" I think it may sound familiar.

Cool Living aboard in CA

Hi Larry - alas, as with MOST places in CA, people seem to think that liveaboards are the scurge of the earth (lower than whale stuff on the bottom of the ocean). The only place close to here that welcomes liveaboards is Ventura West Marina in Ventura Harbor.

Currently, where I am at, we are paying the almost the lowest slip fees in Southern CA. About $9.50 a ft/mth.

We are one of the cheapest Marina's around, I am on the cheapest finger available and I pay NZ$8.33/ft/mth. That's NZ$375.00/mth. I get a power connection, rubbish collection, freshwater and a carpark included in that. Expensive facilities considering we hardly use them.Carpark only really and a battery charger and De-Humidifier in the Winter.
and an extra NZ$20.00/wk if we lived aboard by the way.

I should also qualify those slip fees with: fees DO vary by boat length - those fee rates were for a 40 ft. slip (yes I am squeezing my boat in - but they allow it).

So Larry.

Are you thinking of moving to California?

And if you are. Good luck in finding a slip?

If you reckon those slip fees are expensive, try the Solent area. There are some marinas here that for a boat of that length you would be paying more than 9000/year

I was going to post slip fees here, but I think it deserves it's own thread.
