Liveaboard Marinas in Portland, OR

Hello!! It's been a while since I've posted here, but I still visit the site frequently for advice.

I was just wondering if anybody knew about living aboard in Portland, OR.
I'm planning on buying at Catalina 30 by the end of the year, keeping my job, and building my skills for extended cruising later in life.

-Do marinas here typically offer liveaboard status?
-What marinas would be best to live at, (Jantzen Beach area hopefully)?
-What is the process of obtaining a liveaboard slip?
-Any other things you can think of

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!!!

check this...
karen owings is a realtor that specializes in floating homes. on her website is a list of moorages in portland (just scroll down in the 'about floating homes' section). i suppose that you would have to research each one by name in order to get the information you are looking for, but it does seem to be the most comprehensive list of moorages i have seen. may help with your liveaboard.

i lived for a year at captain's marina on the bridgeton slough, just across from hayden island. i really liked it there- one block to a rad little coffee shop, plaid pantry, and pretty close in to portland.

i noticed that you haven't gotten any replies and it has been a while since you posted. i, too, am curious to have some of your questions answered. have you gained any knowledge yourself about living aboard here?

i am considering the lifestyle myself, but have yet to figure out the logistics. here's to it....

I don't know exact pricing.

But for the Hayden Bay marina, it is roughly $300 for a liveaboard for a 30 foot boat.
