I slip my boat at Alamitos Bay, Long Beach. You are allowed to spend 14 continuous days per month on your boat. More than that and you would be considered a 'liveaboard'. So if you spent the last two weeks of a month and the first two weeks of the next month you would not be considered a liveaboard. Slip fees at Alamitos Bay are resonable compared to Newport Beach or Dana Point. However, the docks are wooden and in bad shape. The city of Long Beach (they own the marina) is currently going through the hoops to totally repair the docks with cement gangways/fingers. The problem is they will have to dredge each basin before installation, which means environmental impact studies. The restrooms/showers are no great shakes either, but they work, are clean and warm and hot water. If you want high thread count towels, bring them yourself.
