    You talking beachfront or vessel?

    I can cop to both at various times, but the considerations are obviously vastly different. :)

    I lived directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Loved it.
    If there's a hurricane you're basically screwed. It's hard to get property insurance that's under $30,000 per year. Property prices are the lowest they've been in a decade.

    Yes. Drinking your own urine was the only bad part.

    Your electronics go bad real fast due to salty air.

    I have a Aunt & Uncle with a beach front home, Great ready to spend tons of money on repairs and repainting every year. The salty air does a number on your home.

    gets very dusty quickly... salt also erodes cars.
    lots of tourists. not a lot of parking for your guests.
    but hearing the waves at night is worth it!

    We have a small cottage about 50 yards from the ocean. Everything rusts but it's worth it to be able to sit outside and hear the ocean all the time

    I lived directly on the ocean, but got tired of treading water real quick.

    I grew up right across the street from a bay and down the street from the ocean in the northeast. Here are some of the pros and cons in no particular order:
    • Always had a nice breeze during the summer.
    • If you like the smell of ocean air, you have it a lot.
    • Your gas grill will corrode within 3-5 years because of the salt air. Also, not good for your car, any metal rails outside, paint on your house, etc. You will need to do more upkeep to the exterior of your house.
    • Great views. Depends on your location.
    • A lot of out of towners will take up your parking, bad traffic, people walking/pissing on your lawn, etc. This is also depending on your location.
    • The wind can be unbearable in the winter.
    • Snow isn't as bad if you are in the Northeast because it is typically warmer than inland.

    I live on Long Island and close to the Atlantic Ocean (I'm actually going in the late afternoon today to patrol for Black Manta).

    THIS is the biggest horror that I know of so far.....

    I rented a small one bedroom apartment that was 2 short blocks from the ocean. Had to walk past 12 homes and cross a road i was there. The only salt rust sun damage I got was on my car mostly on the roof.
