Pre-requisites for Living/cruising aboard?

Hello all, I am currently active duty in the Navy in Pearl Harbor. I will be heading back to Seattle soon and I am trying to gather all the information I need to get started on my dream of living aboard MY boat.
What qualifications must I aquire? I have been trained in ship handling, and the like for Naval Ships (missile cruisers) but I gather that they will differ greatly for a private vessel.
Is there a certain liscence I must get certified for? I am used to living ultra light and in cramped shipboard conditions, so I need lees help in the area of getting used to it, than actually figureing out where to begin the transition.
Thanks for any and all help.
