live aboard in SF Bay

I'm working with a broker to purchase a sailboat. Looking for live aboard marinas and general "be ware of's" for living aboard in the SF bay area. I work in Palo Alto, but it seems most of the live aboard marinas on the west side of the bay have long waiting lists.

I've been told that the MO is to buy the boat and then wait until a slip becomes available. That is an expensive option as rent out here is a bit high. So boat, slip and apt rent costs would pinch me, particularly since some of the waiting lists are pretty long.

Any suggestions? What about the east bay? Any good places with easy access to Palo Alto? Safe?
