Re: OMG i need liveaboard soon.

Williams, have a nice deep cup of highly caffientated coffee and try re-reading the orignal post very carefully. The OP is not dreaming of a liveaboard. He's not dreaming of anything. He's looking for dirt cheap housing:
"i need to move soon and a sailboat is the cheapest thing i can think of"

And in that he's highly mistaken. The best kindness anyone can do is to throw a bucket of cold water on this before it starts, and say, hey, living aboard a docked boat is not cheap housing, no matter how you do it.

OK, living aboard a derelict vessel on mudbank somewhere might do it, but that's still going to cost more than other options.

Living aboard to save money? Sure, fifty years ago. This ain't 1950 any more.
