There are many houseboats floating around San Francisco Bay. Take a bike ride south of the SF Giants stadium and you'll see a bunch:

I worked with a guy in San Francisco who kept his sailboat docked in San Francisco during the workweek, then sailed up to near Davis to his cheap regular house on the weekends.

Wow that's a great idea. Until the next tsunami hits anyway.

$ 5 to $ 10 per foot in high rent areas? No way. Those are yacht club prices. In one of San Diego's marinas, we pay close to $ 30 per foot. Yacht clubs in the area are much cheaper but the waiting lists are years and the fees to join are very costly. Do some checking around and you will find that dock fees are expensive.
