You mean Cali-Wacko-Fornia?
Pretty amusing, considering where you're from.
Many marinas here in the Bay Area, both private and munincipal, allow a certain percentage of their tenants to be liveaboards. In the better marinas, this is seen as a good thing, liveaboards providing a modicum of security. In other (read: less expensive) marinas, the "sneakaboard" issue is a problem, POS boats providing a place for those looking to live on the cheap to crash. The Berkeley Marina is a prime example.
