OMG i need liveaboard soon.
can someone here tell me what special things i need to do to get a liveaboard? i need to move soon and a sailboat is the cheapest thing i can think of; however, i live in southern california and have heard some things about needing permits? or that i cant stay on a boat more than 2 nights? i basically want to go on craigslist, make a purchase, and be able to keep the slip and live on it. is this possible? if i find one on a non liveaboard slip, will the marina let me move it to one of their liveaboard areas or is their a waitlist? i dont want to buy a boat and not know what to do with it and myself, definitely dont want to buy one and have to pay for its slip and then have to go find an alternative living situation.
