I don't think all live-aboards are misfits, but some could be more appropriately called hermits. In my marina, to my knowledge, it's all guys who liveaboard. Mine is the only boat of us live-aboards that gets out of the marina, although they do all have bigger and more spacious boats than I. I also have a fair share of girlfriends visiting, which I hope means that I am neither a misfit nor a hermit. But I don't keep girlfriends for long, which could mean that I am both a misfit and a hermit. I'm so confused.
