Well Denise, since I am single again, I have been going through the same exercise. What if this, what if that? My 34'er is just barely big enough for me to live on, for a temporary basis. But thats just me, I like space, and a big galley. So, I think about living aboard all the time but I sit here at home and not on my boat, doing the same thing you are. I am figuring out how to finish my house to possibly sell it in the spring. But then what, buy a better house in a better area? Buy a bigger boat with a slip in SF and a slip in Alameda so that I can go back and forth when I need to be with my son? I am sure none of this makes sense to you as it is all personal to me, but just making a point that there is always so much to consider, but why the hell didn't I just go down to the boat tonight and sleep on her? Thats my immediate goal, work with whats available to me right now. Spend days and nights on end staying on her, and see how I like it. Good luck to you.
