Yud,
I am from Akron and liveaboard a Catalina 30 in Annapolis MD. I took a job in DC and the rents were just outrageous! My monthly rent for a crappy 1 bdrm 20 miles from DC was more than the monthly payment on our 15 year mortgage for our house in Akron!
Pick up a copy of "The Essential of Living Aboard a Sailboat" by Mark Nicholas. It was very helpful to me as I was doing my research. Also, try walking the docks where you want to live and striking up conversations with liveaboards. They always seemed eager to share their experiences with me when I started.
