Step 2: Rent a Marina Slip

That's where you'll put your new boat.
Our slip costs $200 a month because it's a 30 foot slip.
Our bowsprit is a lot of that length. We could saw it off to save rent, but it's a great thing to ride on.
Some marinas don't allow wooden boats because they don't like beauty or suffering.
Or boats older than ten years, or worth less than 40 grand or somesuch because they worship Moloch.
We found the Emeryville Marina, which is a righteous place.
Here's the application we filled out to get in.
It requires insurance, which in turn asks what marina the boat is in, which is a catch-22.
If. Any one has a good vesle I can get. Please call 229-410-9253

Another cool helping each other boat finding or sharing could be if you got a boat and need help with it yet you own a farm or other land that we would be working on it, is that you share let others fix their boats there and help you in exchange for letting them work on theirs on your property. You can get a release signed from anyone who wants to be part of the barter, so you don't have to worry about someone falling etc. We could start a fleet or remember the convoy song ?
What if we started bartering more. My idea of a decent barter in these situations is to have our own posts about example 1 first mate wanted - I have a boat needs TLC, and you could be my first mate send contact info if you can get to east end of long island or are out here. We can share for a while. Bestdayever@gmail.com 2- You have a boat need a 1ST MATE willing to share my boat with either sex as long as we are basic lyrics compatable.contact Yada Yada see what I mean.
is this for real?
<p>Yes it is. Totally real and accurate instructable. </p>
<p>For those hoping to find one, keep any eye out here. </p><p>They search them out an post free boats daily. </p><p>http://free-boat.com/</p>
Id just live in it.. seriously
I have a Catalina 22 that I live on. Small, but comfortable. I have A/C, heat. power. stove........etc, etc...and Wifi. Paid $500 for it. Was given another by the marina which I salvaged the sails, motor and hardware from. Remodeling it now to sell for a larger sailboat and do it all again. A 35-40 foot is my goal.
<p>Just got one of these, and beginning to outfit it for live aboard. What love to talk to you about your experience and your know how.</p>
Until you legally transfer the title (like you do when you buy or sell a car) you don't own the boat, no matter what the harbor master says. He just wants to get an abandoned boat off his property.
boats arent that much like cars at all in a legal sense, because the marine salvage act applies to them which esentially means that if a vessle has been abandoned for a period of time it can be retrieved by anyone and registered to a new owner, the title is only necessary if it still has an owner who still lays claim to it
Same here. I'm only 15 but seriously considering living in a boat. How freakin' awesome would that be? Or just get free boats, fix em' up, and sell em'.
Sleeping in them in the Northeast is a bad idea. We had some friends who did that and they couldn't survive more than one winter.
Um, Blankets?
I'm sure they had blankets. And yet, they didn't decide to stay for more than one winter.
I've done winter camping in Massachusetts and you need a little more than blankets. to survive a thermal insulated sleeping bag is a must. if your not prepared for harsh cold even in 3 inches of down you don't want to be in a new England winter with out a house around you.
Please... I spent a whole winter living outside with nothing more than a thick winter coat in a tree fort to stay away from the ground critters. Massachusetts weather ain't that bad lol
I can tell you plenty of times you didn't do that as you'd be dead ATM if you did. <br>Just because you did something stupid in a miler part of the state at a milder time doesn't mean anything. Being near to that cold gray ocean when winter is pounding the coast hard is something completely different.
the one time i camped out in winter in NY, i think i wore two layers of sweats/hoodies and had a couple of blankets and once i got the snow beneath me to conform to my body, i slept like a baby. it wasn't below 20 degrees, but i'd do it again in a heartbeat. living in the cold 24/7 though is a different issue. i hate sitting on cold toilet seats! LOL<br />
LOL try Michigan..
rather not if it's worse. then again after 07 I'd like to see worse conditions apart from north Canada. I thankfully listened to the weather and avoided waking to my tent under a 7 foot snowdrift.
As someone who has lived their whole life in Massachusetts, I can tell you that you do not want to be on the water in the winter. No offense, Blue, but that's how people die. They don't have enough sailing experience, or they're not prepared, or whatever and all it takes is one storm and they're gone. My advice would be to live up north in the summer and more docile months and then sail down to the Caribbean for the winter. All and all though I'd save that for something to do at the end of your life.
no argument here. a boat on the open water will soon become toothpicks in winter, I was just commenting about the cold. PS: where do you live, I'm on the Quincy/Dorchester boarder.
Out in the "wild west", ways from Springfield. It's pretty boring. I know some people who lived for a while in Quincy; it's a pretty cool place.
1 T stop from Boston 2 buses from the blue hills its a nice balance. went visiting a friends aunt out your way. 3 hour trip but beautiful place.
Try a winter in a shipping container in Gunnison, Colorado. I hear that's pretty brutal! (Not that I'd want to winter in the Northeast at all, a little too damp).
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; It's only damp above freezing. Once you get below freezing the air is dry.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Insulate! Insulate! Insulate!<br />
hey selling them would be a good idea!
The major factor a boat owner should consider are the local zoning laws. You can get a pretty hefty fine for living in a non-residential zone such as a rent-storage facility. Plus not having running water, electricity, or long-term toilets can get inconvenient real fast. And hooking up to a near by ‘free’ source would not go unnoticed for very long since someone has to pay the bill.
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; An acquaintance of mine used a hole in enforcement to get around the laws. He pulled a hull into the parking lot at the rear of his business. He gutted everything and lowered a camper inside the hull and bolted it in. He ran power from his shop. It turns out that the regulation of boats fell to our water police and they never patrol on land. And the building inspectors could do nothing as the boat was on a trailer. Even if some official had wanted to complain that he was living in that boat it would be very hard for them to prove. With the door closed even if they climbed on board it would be hard to swear that anyone was inside the camper. Oddly the guy did rig the camper in such a way that the boat actually could function on the water. He even took a long vacation on that contraption.<br />
your acquaintance is a hero.
My parents had a truck camper free of my local yahoo group named &quot;freecycle&quot; from http://www.freecycle.org and we put it in the driveway for me to live it. Well about a month went by my mother said shes going to get rid of it because its useless if I can't live because code enforcement said no and I was thinking &quot;how wold they know? They can't get in without a key and we can tell them that we don't have one proving that no one is living in it..&quot; Needless to say she still said no- after all she's my landlord- it was a little time after I realized that she wanted to make room for another car.
That's sounds pretty cool and sneaky. Could you post some pictures of the 'Winnebago-boat' if you have any?<br />
same lol
<p>The boat does not have to be a hole in the water you pour money into it could be a free boat you part out and make pure profit on. </p>
