Living aboard and cruising long-term are very different things IMHO.
Whether it is cheaper to liveaboard really depends on where you are located and what boat you are living aboard.
A/C can be added to a boat after the fact. However, if you're living aboard, you can often add AC powered A/C, which is not generally an option for the long-term cruising boat, which won't have access to shore power usually.
There are books out on living aboard
, and there is also a magazine for Living Aboard. I'd recommend Tom Neale's book
. Charlie Wing's book
is pretty good too.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
