Re: The Live aboard dream right out of college?
Maybe find a boat for sale at a local marina, buy it, and liveaboard/do weekly sails from there. Then when you gain experience move on to the next harbor. If you can support yourself while you do it. In general living on a boat is more of an effort than living on the hard, but it is fun learning how hard!. But it would be an excellent experience and completely doable even if it was for 3-6 months. Sailing to 'India' is a whole other thing compared to docking up in Beaufort or somewhere. Have you ever been offshore on a sailboat for days/weeks at a time? It gets a little old after about three days! Ever heard of 'monkey but'? Maybe just buy a ticket to Bangkok or wherever and charter a boat there and various other place you mentioned?
