I'm not a liveaboard, but I do have a 30ft sailboat slipped at Alamitos Bay Marina, Long Beach. This is just to the north of Orange County. At our marina before you get on the liveaboard list. You need to have a boat in a slip. At our marina the slip rental list is about 6 months for a 30-35 ft boat. I do have a resource for you so you can call marina's down to San Diego. Socal's local Boating Magazine is called 'The Log' and they put out a yearly marinal guide for all of Ca. You should be able to pick one up at your local West Marine. The nearest to you would be in Newport Beach. If you cannot find the magazine try the website http://www.thelog.com
. Hope this helps.
