Year round on the ocean, you will want to be on the East coast. The ocean on the west coast isn't a lot of fun in the winter.


Sometimes, in Florida, you can buy a cheap house on one of the canals that has the right to have a dock. That would give you a home base where you could tie up occasionally.


Docking for ocean going boats is really expensive.
I honestly would have expected the west coast to be more tolerable than the east coast due to the milder weather and calmer seas. My understanding is the name pacific came from how calm the ocean was.

'inland waters' is not a bad choice for a 'cool' winter spot (Puget Sound / Strait of Georgia) fpr PAcific

For Atlantic,,, Chesapeake Bay, Albamarle Sound, Pamlico, Cape Fear River, lots of inlets in SE USA

I would look to calmer seas and warmer weather and not near hurricane belt.

The Pacific Ocean is huge, with big variations in conditions.
