Re: Relocating to SoCal to liveaboard - have a catch 22...
California is full of hoops to jump through at every turn. Boat has to be the right size (usually at least 35ft), there are wait lists, arbitrary decisions by marina masters, most say no pets, 2 person max. This has made living aboard legitimately very difficult for us on a 30 foot boat with two little ones. Good luck to you. Well worth it once you jump through all the hoops and find your place.
