most the marina's in the SF Bay
have some liveaboard
slips. Maximum amount is 10% by state regulation of the bay area. There are in most cases a wait list for a liveaboard slip
However one can take a transient slip for a month or three, sometimes longer. In many cases the daily transient slip fee is no more then the monthly and liveaboard fee. well pretty close anyway.
I agree that Alameda has the best weather
and stores are near by. Probably years wait now a days.
Be advised that many marina's in the SF bay
area now require a 35 foot boat
length for liveaboard. Use to be 30 foot till a few years ago.
Slip and liveaboard fees
will be in the $600+ month range. Liveaboard fees
range from $200 to $350 depending on location. All will want the first month deposit and proof of liability insurance
. They will inspect the boat
Generally You'll have to show up at the harbormasters office to see if they have a slip or if there is a waiting list. Calling for a liveaboard slip
will not work
