Good day, just wondering if there any other "liveaboards" on the forum.



My wife and I live on our houseboat, and we love it !!!

It's been 8 years that we liveaboard, and I wish I had done it 25 yrs ago.



The peace and quiet, the sound of the water splashing on the hull is like "music" to my ears.



Some of the LandLubbers that we know, DON'T UNDERSTAND what we find interesting about living on a boat.



I'm sure there will be people reading this message who will TOTALLY UNDERSTAND IT...



If you're a little curious to know about our Houseboating Lifestyle (shameless plug), be sure to visit our website.



Good night, and may you rock to sleep... IAN

I haven't had a chance to check out your website yet but I will asap. Where are you living? We are considering the Keys but are concerned about the summer temperature and the cost.

I own a marina in North Fort Myers Florida and we have a great group of

liveaboards and are reasonably priced ($10/ft for long term + electric and a small liveaboard fee of $40 for 1 person and $20 for each additional

person). Feel free to contact me for more information: e-mail is [email protected] or phone number is 239-980-0051.

Hey Kevin!



Just became a member here. Looking to purchase a houseboat the end of this summer. So studying up on safety, rules, marinas, etc. Been into sailing and ocean boats on and off the last 15 yrs. My boys are grown on their own and I have been single the last 5 yrs. Me and my brother are buying a home here in Brunswick GA but I am looking to finally following my heart for me! I plan on leaving my name on the house here so I can always come back to visit or whatever. But long to travel down the east and west coast of FL onto TX and on to CA where my oldest son lives. I saw your message here and would like info on your marina for short term people. Looking to take my time along the way! Stay as long as I want along the way. Please send me info of your marina and local area. I know people all over the states.........family and friends and have friends close to your area. Thanks!

Ian,

read your message about living aboard HB. I to have a houseboat 19x90 really nice boat, question is the boat is landlocked in Kentucky on a really nice lake about 100 miles long. But I would like to be able to move it to warmer climates such as Fla. do you know of marineas in Fla that accept HB and the other question is. Waves, ugh they can't take much and salt water would painting the hulls work.

Hope you continue to love living aboard we have talked about it but KY is cold and boring in the winter so no way year round.

John

Kevin

you mentioned owning a marina in Fla (where) the question is I also have a houseboat 19x90 and would like to move it one day to fla. Is it possible or to big the boats I have seen in marinas tend to be smaller 16x60 or 55 do you accept HB and what about waves, salt water services if ever needed etc. Also bridge clearance as it is pretty high, what with the top deck arch, also 36 ft of it is under fiberglass cover.

thanks and would appreciate any information you might be able to supply

John
