Hello, i'm Jr and this is the first time i heard about the forum and am glad to join. Presently looking for a 27' Catalina. Used to have an o'day 25 which i lived on for 4yrs here in nyc waters. i didn't know anyone else living this way. Never paid for docking and wasn't ever approached by the harbor p.d. i would like to move to the Chesapeake bay considering we are not welcome in Europe. It's been years since i last sailed so i figure the bay would be an excellent location for winter sailing and i can start learning again. Any info on life on the bay and the best yards for diy is welcomed. i still work on engines and modify old motorcycles. Time to get back to the water. Fair winds and following seas, peace

No, i was told about STP, whereabouts did you put the stickers? i live in Brooklyn and haven't met anyone that has lived in these waters not including the houseboats in the boat basin who get shore power and have amenities other yards don't. When i returned to Brooklyn i heard about the marina near the Brooklyn bridge, new to me but only open for the spring thru November season. i'm presently in Norfolk, came to look at a few boats. Think i found a Catalina 27 in New Rochelle and will return this weekend to see it. Found a Sun yacht 27' in Baltimore for 2200$, needs interior work but hull is solid needs paint. Unfortunately i don't know anyone in MD so i'm passing on it.

Someone I know used to live on a boat in the canal in Queens but left to go ride trains and I imagine someone else has squatted it by now.
I put some up near the east village.

i lived in LES back in the beginning of 2000, all that has changed and living aboard is a better choice

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount

Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $75.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $75.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
