It' funny that you mention "sneakaboards".
This summer we were looking for permanent moorage as the slip we have now will be gone come April 1.
Although we only require simple moorage many of the marinas around the south end of the Island do not accommodate liveaboards, yet there is obviously people living aboard the boats.
When we would inquire about this situation we found that the marina had no choice in the matter as most of these people had been grandfathered into their current situations, and being liveaboads they fall under the BC Residential Tenancy Act and have just as many rights as a person who rents a house.
I tend to like having a few liveaboards near my moorage as they tend to act as security for the unattended boats that are moored near by.
Maybe this could be a good selling feature for your situation you require, if you find someone who accommodates livaboards.
I can't imagine that Comox doesn't have somebody offering livaboard moorage but I can tell you that unless the moorage contract clearly states that there are "no livaboards allowed" once your in, your in, for at least 3 months based on the BC Residential Tenancy Act.
So, good luck.
