A few years ago, when slips were hard to come by in San Diego Bay, it was virtually impossible to get a liveaboard slip
. Now many of the marinas
are half empty and they are more welcoming to liveaboards. The trick is to not call on the phone
. Walk in and and meet the dock master and ask about availability. They just want to make sure you are not an unsavory character before inviting you to live in their marina.
Kona Kai marina is liveaboard
friendly in general and has plenty of space, so you should have no problem getting a slip there. As an FYI, it is illegal to liveaboard
in Mission Bay, but we are told the marinas turn a blind eye if you do.
As for heat, I get cold easily. I run a space heater every night and on cooler days. The space heater works great.
