Re: Liveaboard in SF Bay?

See Boating SF Marinas. Not all marinas allow pets, some allow live aboards, some don't, some have waiting lists, some don't, some have wifi, some don't, some require a minimum boat size of 30, others, 35, and yet others do not have a minimum boat size. So be sure to check. All require a minimum of $300K liability insurance.

Once you've narrowed options, be sure to not only visit the marina but to also talk with residents. Ask why they picked a particular marina. I have heard of everything from commuting accessibility, to weather protection, to bay access, to allowing pets, to other amenities. In addition to finding out this info, it will give you a feel for the community atmosphere, facilities, how well (or not) the marina is maintained, etcetera.
