I commuted to my boat in Alameda from Kona for several years, free airfare helped. Stayed a week or more at a time once nearly a month. No problems with the marina though they wouldn't give me access to the laundry
facilities reserved for live aboards. Did get a snarky comment from the busy body lady who ran the office when I came twice in quick succession and was aboard for most of a month. Talked with the manager afterwards and he said no problem. The key is undoubtedly getting on the good side of thee staff. I took evening walks along the docks and told
The office about boats with issues like SINKING and BADLY FRAYED mooring
lines which they appreciated.
