Has anyone else lived aboard a boat this small or recently moved unto a boat? Any experiance & suggestions would be great!
We have lived aboard with our kiddo (have two now) and two dogs on a Catalina 380. It was a wonderful experience most of the time (and sometimes it really stinks!! but that is just life). You will enjoy it. Our boat was considerably larger than yours, but there was more of us too.

Good luck with it and feel free to ask any questions you have. Welcome aboard.
