Owning a boat long/cruising from long distance?

What are the challenges/issues with owning a boat and putting it in a slip while living a ways off (say, Tennessee, for instance), and hopping a plane every week or 2 to go sail?

This would be vs. purging everything here, moving to the water and doing it from there. I'm not sure I'm pure liveaboard material, and even if I moved to the water I would still want a place on the land. So if I can have a lower cost of living where I'm at and take advantage of ridiculous cheap ass airfare to fly down every week or two, live aboard while I'm there, learn to sail, and do some short trips, what are the costs and other issues to consider?
