Hi Everyone -
My searches on here have been coming up short - so your help will be much appreciated - so here goes:
Yup - you've got one of those people who always wanted to do this - but has still been weighing the options - so here's what's needed and what's needed to know...
What is the best "walk-able" marina anywhere in the US? (and I mean all 50 states - AK and HI included) ... I can work
from anywhere (am not retired) ...just need a good high-speed wifi
- (but let me not get ahead of myself as I have many requirements - so let me explain this "walk-able" thing first) What does "walk-able" mean to me? The following:
-Near everything - meaning restaurants, stores, public rail transit (if buses - okay but so long as everything else is available - but rail is ideal/optimal) - walk to town - or walk to a light-rail/subway etc. so I can get to everything else (like city-center, airport
or where things are "happening").
A really good example is the the "Emeryville Marina" in the SF Bay
area. If you look at it on Google
maps - you can see how one can walk to anything - from Starbucks to Trader Joe's to Target to Men's Wearhouse (lol - hey still need clothes right?) to Best Buy ...plus BART rail. This is almost exactly as ideal a situation as you can have (plus tons and tons of other things). This makes living aboard
not only completely self-sufficient and sustaining - but eliminates the need for any kind of vehicle - even a bike (as walking is my form of exercise).
So all of the above said, here's what else is needed:
-Looking for something for a 28-36 (give or take)' saildboat (am in the market to buy - havne't found anything yet - some stuff on Craigslist)
-Free to BBQ on onboard grill
-Great community of folks who are friendly.
-won't be "years-long" waiting to get a slip (I'm open to trying to make offers to people who may want to sell there sailboat/slip)
There's more - but I'll post this now and then just edit/add later ...
Again folks any help with this would be great...thanks to all in advance
