Is it so private that it's restricted to 3 boats on pontoon 21 who have a secret handshake?
If anyone has bothered to ask, when I've lived in marinas that don't allow liveaboards, I was not living there but was a "frequent visitor".Newhaven above the bridge is probably OK, in the marina below the bridge they told me they would evict me if I was found to be living aboard. Lady Bee in Brighton had a nominal five year waiting list, when a vacancy came up they start at the top of the list and work down. Not everyone still wants the place when it comes up, or have paid up elsewhere and so the wait can be shorter. I would confirm the figures for Brighton, unofficially I was told to try Brighton when I made discreet inquiries in Eastbourne who don't seem to like livaboards.
Lady Bee is not the same without Pussy Sweet.Brighton has hundreds of liveaboards, go through the premier marinas web site, request a quote and let them contact you, you'll be fine as long as you follow the golden rule. Eastbourne is liveaboard intolerant, Newhaven or Lady Bee Marina are possibilities but facilities not so plush. Birdham Pool is lovely if they have a space and depending on any work travel commitments you may have. These are just a few of the possibilities that spring to mind, you'll find somewhere, best of luck and enjoy your new liveaboard life...
