How's Foss Harbor in between Port Orchard and Gig Harbor.
A closer scrutiny of your charts may be in order.

Re: LIVEABOARD MARINAS IN PORT ORCHARD TO GIG HARBOR?

Pretty sure liveaboards are allowed at the Port Orchard Marina (Port of Bremerton), Bremerton Marina (also Port of Bremerton), Sinclair Inlet Marina (private), and Port Orchard Railway Marina (private).

We have our boat moored at the Port Orchard Marina and so far have been pretty happy, though we've only been there for a few months now. Both the Port Orchard Marina and the Bremerton Marina seem to have pretty nice facilities. Laundry facilities on site and free showers in the tenant-only restrooms (that are kept very clean).

The Sinclair inlet marina didn't seem too bad when we were looking, but I'm not sure they have slips for a 42'er. The PO Railway Marina doesn't appear to have anyone on site anymore for operations, I know their billing now goes through a lawfirm out of CA I think.

I think Port Orchard is one of the least expensive places for moorage in the sound, so that's nice. Gig harbor is definitely a fancier setting, but is also more expensive. PO and Bremerton offer easy access to downtown Seattle via the ferry system, the Seattle ferry leaves directly next to the Bremerton Marina, and there's a foot ferry from the Port Orchard Marina to the ferry terminal next to the Bremerton Marina.

There used to be a small marina down Hood Canal.... but the name evades me.

Pleasant Harbor ?
It's been totally remodeled and has some nice amenities. They have it priced on par with most other PNW marinas I think.
It's a bit out of the way, and when the southerlies blow.... Oh man, the canal can turn wicked.

Honestly you would be happiest in the bremerton marina they have great facilities close to the ferry to Seattle and several stores and cafes within walking distance as well as several fast food places like subway and taco del mar there is also a little store there on the boardwalk just before the Starbucks ( if you couldn't tell I live in the bremerton marina on my islander

West Shore Marina in Gig Harbor allows live aboards and one of the two live aboard boats currently there has three dogs. No showers or restrooms on shore though.
