Maybe $18/foot per month. Plus electricity and liveaboard fees (hundred bucks or so a month). It's not cheap living on a boat around these parts.

A 40 ft slip in Long Beach Shoreline, max 44' 11"... 800+ mo, liveaboard(190 liveaboard fee)
You will pay quite a bit more in Newport plus not much wind.

Put it in perspective.

How much would a bedsit cost you in SoCal per month? For my 2 cents, I'd say $400pm is a nice figure for having a roof over your head, electricity supplied and security.

Someone mentioned that my local marina was excessive as it charged £305 per meter per year but for an 8 meter sailboat, that's only about £200 a month. A bedsit here would cost between £250 and £350 per month!

Not to mention that if you wanted to go on vacation, you can just release the lines and off you go! In a bedsit you would need flights, hotel etc

I had to search for the meaning of "bedsit". Here, we would refer to that as an efficiency apartment. Location makes a big difference throughout the US and even can differ greatly within a county. In North Florida we are paying $8.30/foot/month which comes to about half the cost of an efficiency with a 8 meter boat. We're also subject to a "liveaboard fee" called a "full time use fee" that bings the cost of our 41' boat up to $500/month and still less than an efficiency rental. Those areas with higher or lower slip rates have a comparable change in the cost of the bedsit.
