1) No, All that info is probably on their website
2) No, Narrow it down, each will want a deposit equal to 1 months slip rent
3) No, get a line on a slip first, you usually have 90 days to get a boat in it.
B) No, you may need to have a boat and a slip of specified length prior to obtaining a "liveaboard" permit
C) Yes, see above
D) Up to you, be careful many claim the slip is transferrable but it's not, don't believe a broker who says "Don't worry about a slip".
E) Depends, you want to be in a marina where friends of the Harbor Master get preferential treatment ?
F) Contacts with the locals can be beneficial
G) Dana Point I've heard is 6 to 10 year waitlist now I hear, I was still number 60 on the list when I got mine however because nobody ahead of me was ready to commit when the slip opened.
Look for Marinas here:
Pacific Marinas ? The Log
This is typical liveaboard policy:

Typical waitlist:
Check the rules and regulations and slip agreements for more info:
