Re: Considering doing Live Aboard. (Need Advise)
Sidney, if he's talking about a 25' Bayliner sailboat, as he seems to be, there's no way he can heat it, or shower on it, or use a real head like someone on a $50,000 boat can.
Simply put, on a 25' sailboat you've got terribly limited room for anything and you'll be using a camping stove and a portapotty and usually remembering not to stand up all the way lest you bump your head.
Which is not to say it can't or shouldn't be done, but living on a boat that small is going to be more like living in a pup tent than in a 20-man military field tent. Having a dock slip and a real bathroom nearby will make it a lot simpler than bringing the portapotty ashore every day on the way to work. :-)
