Re: Looking to assume loan and live aboard 45-50 ft sailboat in Southern California
I lived aboard and held a professional job for years. It's a great life style in the right marina. Marinas tend to be funny with live aboards - the first answer is usually no. They also tend to have a different answer once they know you and know the boat is well kept. They do notice things. Buying a boat with a slip attached would help. Not sure what your experiences is or what the local market is like but I can tell you the live aboard transition is much easier if you already have a boat in the marina that you want to stay at. Shortcuts - very few that are good ideas.
