Many here can say they have been around the world. I've seen a fair bit of it.

As a happily married man of 26 years I prefer the PNW for boating, the rain gets to most people, the cost are high and the fishing gets worse when you near Seattle. Live abord is hard to find on the east side, the west has a few more hidden places that allow it. But the North water is nice, boat people are nice, fishing is ok.

If I was single.
Florida, good places to go, lots of party's, lots of bars, good fishing, warm weather, cost are a little less pending location.

Ron, I am single and live aboard my AT34 near Hollywood FL
Per your description of FL, I have to laugh. 9pm, I have my glass of brandy and my last cigar, at 10pm I am asleep.

Where to live

Having said that, I seem to keep coming back to the Pacific Coast in my mind's eye. That doesn't mean I won't consider every other part of the country in which to narrow my hunt for the boat itself. I somehow can't shake the feeling that I'll get up there eventually.
First, finding a marina that allows liveaboards is getting tougher all over the US. Having said that, I’ve lived in and boated in San Diego, Whidbey Island, Wa, Pensacola and Jacksonville, Fl and Jacksonville, NC. All things considered, I would recommend the PNW. Great cruising grounds and NO HURRICANES! On the Gulf Coast or East Coast you are very likely to eventually suffer serious damage to your boat or worst case, lose it. At the very least you will have the headache of dealing with strong storms and Hurricanes every year. Oak Harbor Marina on Whidbey Island allows liveaboards (or used too) is affordable and is a great headquarters for cruising the PNW. There are also studio apts and condos close to the marina.

Although factually true as usual you just like to argue about everything . in the beginning I said in my opinion hot humid expensive Marine growth on the bottom of your boat I can give you a whole list of reasons why I feel living in the south and especially Miami would be a life of hell for me that’s just me get over it wifey b , Scooby Do is the name of my dog where the heck does wifey b come from . I think it’s going to be in the upper 80s today average August temperatures are probably in the upper 80s maybe lower 90s I don’t know nonetheless air conditioning on a boat defeats the purpose of boating once again in my opinion I despise air conditioning on a boat .I bought a boat in San Diego not too long ago had to go there to pick it up it has air-conditioning takes up a whole cabinet you can only run it when tethered to a dock Or a generator another wonderful thing . I also despise being around people I have no sense of humor

To the OP: This thread took some hard turns into several ditches. I mean this as a serious question with a legitimate question-mark at the end: What are you leaning towards?

Wifey B: Nor RTF can he figure out Wifey B. I don't know if it's the Wifey part or the B part that throws him. Maybe he'll ask you for help. If so, please assist him.

I have only one more suggestion for the OP. Anywhere but Crystal Cove.

Personally I'd recommend the Tampa Bay area. Great cruising. Here's a Florida boat on Craigslist that I found today: https://tampa.craigslist.org/pnl/boa...307174362.html

Yep, the Green Monsters. Still, pretty decent motors as long as they check out. A ton of them out there so used parts are available which is a good thing because the price for new Volvo parts is Still, if this boat checks out it's a good price and would work well as a live-aboard. Plus the OP might be able to keep the slip which is in a fun area.

Wifey B: He says you have no sense of humor and can't live there. Don't think he even knows who he was targeting as your post was intended to be humorous I thought. Oh, I feel for you davy boy, to be on the bad side of the doggy.
