Live a board

i was wondering if someone with live a board experance could help me out. i would like a live aboard but not sure what size boats i would need for this. i would live on it with my girlfriend and would like to have a spare room for 2 guests and enough room not be cramped with 6 or 8 people on board I also do a lot of scuba diving and would like to be able to dive from the boat. i know a sail boat is not the best boat to dive from but i would have to make due. i have no intention on sailing it around the world or across any magor oceans the furthest i would ever try to go would be from south florida to the bahamas and i would not really need to single hand it. both my girlfriend and i have a lot of sailing experance.
Has anyone lived on board with a small children and how does that work out?
- planning for the future there.

also i was thinking about restoring a boat. im thinking if the Hull, Deck and magor parts of the rigging are good i can work with that. but how much would a wreck cost and where would i look?
