Liveaboards in California

My husband and I have just joined this forum and have found it to be of great interest. We have lived aboard our Krogen Manatee trawler in Sausalito, CA since 1988. We love boating and use our boat extensively. Several years ago we did a boat swap with fellow Manatee owners on the east coast and did a three month cruise on the Intracoastal Waterway from Fort Myers up to the Annapolis and back. We have rented canal boats in Holland, England and France. We are interested in doing other boat exchanges anywhere in the world. It would not be necessary to take the boat out of the slip. We just love being on boats. We are hosts on board cruise ships and are just completing our seventh world cruise. We generally are on ships about half of the year, so our boat is available while we are gone. Thus it would not be necessary to have a simultaneous swap. We do not have pets or kids. We are open to most possibilites.

Aloha Boatcruisers,
Great area for your boat. Welcome aboard!! Wish I had something for you to stay on here in Hawaii but just have a house with some boats in the yard.
Kind Regards,

Welcome to the Forum . . .

. . . I think you'll (mostly) enjoy the give-and-take here, boatcruisers!

I don't have anything to offer along the lines you mention - at least, not yet - but I didn't want to see your post drop off the "front page" until more people have had a chance to read it.

It may be that most people here (I don't know if there is any way to really know this) are pre-disposed to sailing craft, but I don't think it should matter in the context of your post. I agree that just being aboard a boat is better than being ashore, and anyone who has ever brushed up against the cost of living in the Bay Area should be grateful for the kind of accomodations you are offering.

Best of luck with your "boat swap" idea. I hope it works out well for you.
