The idea of living aboard someone else's boat has arisen previously...and been shot down almost completely. Boats, even small ones, are fairly expensive and letting a stranger liveaboard it is taking a huge risk, financially and emotionally, since most people care about their boats.

There is no upside for someone to let you live aboard their boat generally speaking and a lot of downsides to it.

BTW, you'd be better off starting a thread in the LEARN TO SAIL Forum about where to take classes in the Long Beach area. Also, recommend you read the POST in my signature, as it tells you how to start a new thread and all that.

Completely separate, I also don't know where to go to take a class on sailing. I have my private pilot certificate and I really enjoy that, but I am looking forward to the slower pace of sailing.

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.
