Hey we had a guy live on a old 60 sail boat no mast, on a mooring during the summer and winter he lived at the dock cheaper that way on the cape oh he had a pot bellie stove in it , so it sounds good to me.

I think your utilities would be included (flat fee) with your slip rental.

I would be on a boat now with a wife and baby, if my job wasn't so far away from the water... I lived at watergate marina in clear lake for a while on a 36' aft cabin carver with my uncle. What marina are you looking into?

I know in alot of cases you dont make money on a boat,, but if I got rid of my apt in the city,, and just crashed on the boat during the week. (marina is 15mins from work), I would save about $1000 a month that could go towards the boat. any thoughts?

The slip is going to be about $250 a month, and the payment on the boat with a good down, and a 5yr note is close to $500.
Check with your local laws, some states don't allow you to "live" on the boat full time. Don't quote me but I think it needs to be listed as a dwelling and not a pleasure boat...

You're probably right.
5 yrs ago I was looking into this type of move in Florida, and I remember there was some sort of "live-aboard" tax, or a permit to live-aboard. I didn't dig to deeply because a work change brought me an the wife to wonderful Kentucky
shouldn't be a problem for spk1 - he said he had an apartment or something that he was going to keep - non issue.
