Its a bit rundown, said Michael ... [cached]

Its a bit rundown, said Michael Aaker, president and general manager of the King Harbor Marina. Why its called a park is beyond me. Theres not a picnic table, a kids area, nothing like that. Its just dead grass.

Aaker said homeless people often come and go, leading to issues with loitering, drinking and litter. For years, the city had an issue with people parking long term in the free parking in front of the park, often camping out for days and practically living out of their vehicles.
I have 70 people that live down on their boats in that area, and they have voiced some concerns, Aaker said.
Aaker, who also suggested installing better lighting at the park, noted the old adage, If you build it, they will come.
If you made it a welcoming park, maybe people would actually use it, he said.

At home on the water [cached]

Running a marina is a balance of keeping it nice for recreational boaters and calm for those who call it home, says Michael Aaker, operations manager for the King Harbor Marina.Liveaboard slips usually account for about 10 percent of a marina's total boat slips.

Marinas with liveaboards are bound to have a mix of tenants.Some are there for the ocean, others are looking to escape something, hide out or live on the cheap, Aaker said.
"Generally they are easy-going, low-key generally," Aaker says."They like to spend their days on the water, just kind of get away from the riffraff."
While living aboard can be inexpensive, it can also cost a fortune depending on maintenance and the size of the boat, Aaker says.Liveaboard slip fees vary among marinas and usually include electricity, a telephone line, cable television, access to laundry facilities, private showers, mailboxes, and sometimes a general store.
Marinas themselves operate like mobile home parks in that tenants often own their boats, but rent the slip in which they float.Some rent the whole set-up.
Aaker says King Harbor allows people to stay aboard their boats for nine nights out of the month without paying the liveaboard fees, a rule often broken by sneakaboards, those who live aboard without paying the additional charges.
As with any marina, there are some boats that are mainly floating apartments.Heller's boat might fall into this category, but he has plans for repairs.
On A-Dock, the annual Christmas party is the big blowout, with food and drink lining the dock, attracting so many people that it dips into the water in the middle.
The dock is the great meeting place, a social mixing spot where millionaires mingle with thousandaires.
This is one of the things Mike and Sue Morgan discovered 22 years ago when they made the move from ocean-view condominium to seafaring home.
Mike is getting ready to smoke a chunk of yellowtail on the barbecue, while Poguey, their 6-year-old Australian shepherd "dock dog" runs around excitedly.
"We have what you call a pile-it boat," Mike says.
The day they return Mike is dockside curing the salmon filets and seasoning the halibut for a Labor Day barbecue.
