Renting an apartment in Morro Bay has always been a challenge but in the 15+ years I've lived here I've always been able to snatch up a $500-$600 a month granny unit or detached garage or something. Those days appear to be over. Those places now go for $800 and if one that is affordable (for me and my income) becomes available it is gone in a day. I've been living in my vehicle for almost a year now and am wondering if I should leave. I know the rents will never go back down, but is it possible the salaries for service work will go up (currently about $10 an hour now)? What is happening economically in Morro Bay? Are there other people in a situation similar to mine?

You could buy a fixer-upper boat and live aboard on the hook there. Rowing the dinghy ashore would be good exercise and your only neighbors would be the otters and birds.

great username!, btw.

Whooops! No can do the boat on the hook thang in Morro Bay. Morro Bay is 100% controlled ... no anchoring out allowed. Mooring balls and dock space are next to impossible to score, as well, and are priced sky high ... a limited number of harbor live-aboard permits exist, but the wait list is eons long.

Port San Luis, around the corner 18 miles at Avila Beach has moorings ... but they are exposed to adverse conditions at times and the tenants tend to run for Morro to shelter out storms. To put that in perspective, the entrance to Morro Bay in bad weather -- which is fairly often -- is considered by the Coast Guard to be one of the most treacherous in America. Many lives lost.

So, that kinda sucks, huh?

OP, can't find a room to rent cheaper over Los Osos maybe?
I vote your username *Best on CD*!
