liveaboard in san francisco bay

Hello:

I am looking at buying a houseboat in the san francisco bay area and was wondering about the possibilities of living in a marina.
The houseboat I am looking at is a 36 ' houseboat. Looking at the emeryville marina as a possibilities.

It looks like there is some restrictions, but the marinas allows people to live on their boat if they conform with rules and keeping their boat in good shape.

Am i wright or wrong?

Thank you for you insights.

The waiting list for a liveaboard slip at Emeryville Marina is 4 years long. Good luck.

Most, if not all, of them. But I'm not doing the legwork for you.

We arrived in the South Bay area at the end of November and managed to find several marinas that would take us as a transient - most, in fact. But then, we have a seaworthy boat capable of setting off on a blue water voyage on an hour's notice and are true transients not looking for a permanent home. Permanent moorage for a houseboat would be another story. If the South Bay area is an option, try Docktown. I think they take pretty much anyone.
