My new house...

As some of you guys may remember I'm moving to southern Cali... well needless to say the real estate out there is beyond ridiculous! So I've came up with a solution... I went to price this yesterday.

http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0Je5x4dbt...an_450x275.jpg


Its a 391 Meridian... and considering the price of real estate out there I think this is a viable option... not to mention, it would go over well with the females.

I found a used 07' with about 60 hrs on it for $299,000. Thats about 60 G's less then brand new. If my house was sold I would have snatched it up. I just put my house on the market about 3 days ago so most likely that one will be gone by the time I'm ready to buy.

Good luck on selling your home.

My slip is only about $100 a month.

Of course my boat isn't 39 feet long...I'm not in California...and it's stacked in a warehouse in dry storage.

Just to give a visual for people that haven't seen something like this...







Just to give you an idea of what the lift drivers have to do...this was my last boat being put to bed.

The place selling me the boat guarantees me they can get me a slip- they somehow bypass the waiting list- ??? ($$$ I'm sure) anyway the slip will be 19 bucks per foot- which comes to 760 per month. Includes dock hook ups (H20, electricity, and a weekly pump out of grey and black water)

As far as upkeep- the marina also includes as part of the slip lease a (once)yearly dry dock for treating the hull. Basically they lift it and store it for me for a week free of charge while the hull is cleaned and treated- which I pay for- about 2 grand- not bad compared to upkeep on a house each year...

I'm sure there will be unexpected expenses just as there are with owning a home- I have a friend that has been living on a catermeran in Clear lake for the last 3 years- he's the most relaxed dude I've ever known. I asked him if he'd do it again- he said he'd never live on land again! He says its "retirement status" why wait till your too old to enjoy it... being that I'm single w/ no kids- that makes sense for me.

I cant wait! Not to mention the marinas have live bands/parties every weekend- one big party atmosphere! and being in Cali- the weather will be beautiful year round!

I figure on getting an enclosed trailer to keep my bike and my 4wheeler in and just park it in the marina parking lot behind my truck. The way I see it is I'm about to start enjoying life!

I wish- marina del rey is where i wanted to be because its only 5 miles to LAX which is where I'll be working- but del rey only accepts 5% liveabaord slips- and they are going thru renovations- so they aren't even accepting liveaboards right now.

Most likely I'll be in San Pedro or somewhere down south in that general area ... maybe eventually Marina Del Rey but most likely not for a good while.

Yeah I think I'll be loving life regardless! i went out there a few weeks ago- the water is so blue and clear! Not like here in Galveston-lol that water is scary brown!

Didn't Don Johnson write/sing a song once- back when he was the latest female pin up boy. I remember a song that just repeated "heartbeat-heartbeat" over and over and over... I think that was him. ??? LOL What a tool!
