It is not the cost, it is the fumes. In some places you will be oriented stern to wind
due to currents. Without a heater
running, temperatures inside a boat
in a winter are in the forties. Occasionally, low fifties when it is sunny.
Humidity is about 80% most of the year. You will need a dehumidifier running most of the time unless you like the mildew smell.
Waiting list at marinas
last year was 1-2 years (I am still on a waiting list in Everett marina since October 2018). Liveaboard
slips have much longer waiting lists. Transient slips are relatively inexpensive and generally available, particularly in winters.
