Re: OMG i need liveaboard soon.
Not sure how it is on the west coast but here on the east coast we have seen many people living cheap on boats that they might not even own. Knowing your boat makes a very big difference in living cost. I go months with food being my only cost. Walking and biking help make it cheaper and is good for the heath. There are dozens of ways to live cheaper on a sailboat but it might have challenges you might not be ready for.
