Hi from Vancouver - advise on moorage and surveyors?

Hello everyone from Vancouver,
I have a very limited experience, sailed once for a race in Victoria last year and liked it a lot.
Now that i'm living right between coal harbour and false creek it became obvious that I need a boat.

I saw a few adds on craigslist and fb that fits my buying budget (>5000$) for a cabin under 26ft, late 70s: US-25, O'Day 25, Santana 25.
I plan on getting the checklist online for the particular model and inspect it myself, really I have no contacts whatsoever yet with boaters... - is it a big red flag or doable if done with care and preparation ?

Second and it seems the more painful point, what to do once I buy the boat! I'm seeing a lot of anchor boats on false creek but it seems you're only allowed for 14/30 days in summer time, and locals marina have 10 yr wait list. Apart from getting buying a boat with a slip, with no car for a trailer, what would be your options?
Do you know about any yatch club that would allow moorage/anchoring for a small boat (<26ft) ?
Any advise here is really appreciated.

See you on the water

Check out the false creek yacht club for any space. Marinas on the Fraser R. will most likely be your best bet.
