Creepin: My post was not to show you how cold the weather was, it was to get you to look at what it looks like at a marina in the winter time. The basin all iced in, the bubblers working and the bone chilling cold you would have to endure to keep up with the maintenance at the dock. Can you handle living on the water in these conditions? It is much more enjoyable in a warmer climate to keep up with a boat's maintenance than in the frigid North. If your wife is in the pharmacetical industry have her check out the jobs in Puerto Rico. I just finished a delivery there and the owner worked for one of these companies, and apparently they have a huge pharmacetical industry there.
