that would be "liveaboard marina" and "San Francisco Bay" with a question mark. Hmmm. tough one, there.
Almost all of the liveaboard marinas I know of are waitlisted—in many cases the wait list is years long—this seems to be especially true in communities where the real estate prices are ridiculously high. Normally , to get around the wait list, one has to purchase a boat that is already cleared for liveaboard status. My question was directed towards trying to get more information as to what liveaboard situation he was particularly discussing.

If he had a specific facility or boat in mind, then he could have said so, and clarified his question.

While the basic question of what is the best/cheapest liveaboard marina in the SFO bay area sounds relatively simple... it really isn't, since it is very unlikely that he'd even be able to get into "the best/cheapest liveaboard marina". Also, as a rule, best and cheapest are generally not the same thing.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
