Live Aboard

My wife and I will be retiring this fall and and have always thought about what it would be like to live aboard a sailboat somewhere warm. We are in Canada and currently have a 32 mirage, however given the weather our liveaboard experience has been limited to weekend trips or bareboat chartering when we go on vacation. We wanted to take a crack at a longer term bareboat to see if we could actually survive long periods on board without ending in divorce. It seems to me that chatering a boat maybe somewhere in Florida....and a slip in a marina for a month or so, might be the way to try this. We sort of like the the facilities at Burnt Store ( Ft. Myers) because we have stayed there before...but are completely open to other locations. In this respect I was wondering if there were any recommendations as to places..... charter companies....marinas.... that would actually allow us to do that for a reasonable price.
