Despite testimony from a roomful of concerned boaters, Ventura Harbor commissioners have voted to raise fees for boat slip rentals and for sailors who live aboard their vessels in the harbor's two major recreational marinas. Beginning in June, more than 1,125 boaters who rent slips at Ventura Isle Marina and Ventura West Marina will pay about 5% more for their slips. And about 130 "live-aboards" at Ventura West will pay the 5% increase, plus 10% more to reside on their boats.

Saturday at Ventura West Marina, a group of sailors will give up a day on the ocean and instead walk the docks, trying to gain allies in an escalating war with marina operators. The "liveaboards" are protesting what many contend is an unreasonable increase in the fee they pay for the privilege of living on vessels tied up at the marina. "I'm irritated as hell," said Paul Bruer, a diver who lives on his boat.
