I'm new to this forum, new to the Bay area, and somewhat new (a little over 1 yr) to the idea of living aboard
a boat. I hope to gain as much insight as possible from the boating
community because ideally I would like to some day own and live aboard my own vessel
For the past year, my boyfriend and I have considered adopting this lifestyle and now, living in Oakland, we are in a much better position to explore our interest of living aboard
more seriously. We are suckers for roaming around the docks in our spare time, and have hung around the Berkeley and Emeryville marinas
, as well as some of the SF docks. We try to chat up people whenever possible, but these liveaboard
types seem elusive! Anyhow, my main asking point is this: Does any one have any advice about liveaboard rental or lease
opportunities in the Bay area? We would very much love to give the lifestyle a go before sinking a considerable sum into a boat.... Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
