By looking on Google
maps I think you may find it difficult to find somewhere in Mountain View to moor a catamaran
. I think you should try something closer to water
Seriously, living aboard
involves lots of compromises and accepting conditions you may not tolerate when land based.
These just start with making a decision to stay either in a marina which can be quite costly but more convenient to living at anchor
which is generally cheaper but a lot less comfortable with limited water
and power supply as well as access to shore transport assuming you still go to work daily.
Answer these questions first before you start thinking about which type of boat. I'm currently a periodic liveaboard
on a monohull
in a marina which suits my lifestyle/income perfectly. But it may not suite someone else.
