Re: San Diego

it depends on the marina sometimes it depends who you buying the boat from as in buying through the dealer that is based at a marina. most will give you 30 days. when I bought my last boat through the dealer in San Diego they got me to the top of the wait list and in a slip the same day the boat arrived and was launched. Dealer pays rent to the marina for their shop and dealer gets you a slip. some times you buy a boat and the owner is going to keep the slip for his next boat so they can sublease it to you until they get their new boat. there is no set rule, it is all part of the deal
It is good that you are dealing with this before you get a boat with nowhere to put it. slips for smaller boats are easier but 40' and above is very hard through out So Cal. San Diego is about the easiest place to find one, live boards is a different story. many have a limited places and don't allow any in smaller then 35' and the fees vary but is common to be 150% of regular slip fees
