At home on the water
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
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.
