They've been living in Eagle Harbor, on Bainbridge Island for years, some for decades. So called "liveaboards" -- people who live on board their sailboats moored just off shore. But recently, many property owners have begun complaining about the liveaboards as freeloaders and eyesores, while the State Department of Natural Resources contends they are an environmental hazard.

In November 2010, the issue came to a head, when the state ordered the liveaboards out of Eagle Harbor. But Bainbridge officials began crafting a plan to save them, viewing them as an historic maritime community.

Can a plan be crafted to appease all sides? And are liveaboards the equivalent of a homeless tent city, or an important part of our state's maritime heritage?
