No liveaboards on Crandom Marina for long contract plus waiting time is 3 to 5 years unless you buy the boat who already has a contract.
If you do not mind being in the mooring and exposed, then you can actually live aboard at Dinner Key Marina. They have a taxi boat also

They require hull insurance?!? I canít buy that....half of the boats in there look like broken dreams.

Re: Lieveaboard marinas near Tampa/St. Pete or possibly Miami

As a sailor in Miami I can tell you itís expensive. Dinner key is friendly to live aboard but you can only get a mooring as the dock waitlist is years long. South Beach Marina would be able to get you in within a few weeks I bet and are friendly to live aboard but the prices are astronomical ($1,800-$2,000/mo for your boat if they insist on the minimum length charge they quoted me). You can try the Pelican Harbor Marina, short wait list for a ďtransientĒ slip that you can just stay at indefinitely (I know others who did this there). Technically they donít allow liveaboards but itís more of a dont ask dont tell policy. Transient slip would run you $600-$700/mo and is very well protected (even in a hurricane).

Miami Yacht club is nice but theyíre very hard to get a hold of as I could never get a call back from them about a slip; great restaurant though.

Feel free to PM me if you want to chat.
