Welcome! From a newbie, and an older person, Ha! Take it nice and slow in picking out your boat. Not only is the hull, engine, etc important...if you want to live-aboard, it must feel like living in a home and not camping and not like you are compromising. Remember that storage is a very important thing. Enjoy and congrats on your Masters!
Welcome aboard, good luck with your search.
Thanks! Gotten a lot of great advice here so far.
