*This* is the $26,000,000 question.

I am waiting on the edge of my seat for an answer to this one...

You could try the Marine Stadium. I saw boats there this fall from when I went north last spring.

I was in, and out of Dinner Cay a couple of times. I saw a lot of livaboards, but I didn't get a warm fuzzy feeling about leaving my boat there.............

You can find a few marinas in the Miami area that allow liveaboards, but if you can get in, it is expensive (ex, Monty's in the grove, but it is $23/foot now) Most of the marinas I've gone to don't officially allow liveaboards... as long as your boat is clean and you don't cause grief (being loud, leaving things on the dock, etc) and are a good neighbor, you probably won't have an issue. The marina by the rusty pelican allows liveaboards I heard.

I'm sorry guys, but every time I read this I think of suit jackets and t-shirts as a fashion statement.

Anyway, I suppose they wouldn't allow you to keep a crocodile on board either.

I don't know if there is actual law against have gators/crocs on board (or as pets for that matter). Can't imagine anyone actually wanting one! This fellow floridian sure didn't want any part of the reptile:

BTW, Crockett was on his sailboat at MiaMarina (Bayside). Looks a lot different these days!

Speaking of which, I know a guy that works at Hopkin's Marine that livedaboard at Miamarina for 3 years...

I was at Monty's for nearly 8 years (not a full time liveaboard, but effectively so!) and I heard about bums living in the bathrooms over at Dinner Key. There is still a huge waiting list to get in there anyways. You do have Scotty's Landing there, but Montys was always a lot more fun and there were about 6 liveaboards there and we had an absolute GREAT time. The good 'ole days...
