To prepare for living on a boat for the length of time you would have to do it to circumnavigate, I think it would be best to focus on the "living" part as much as or even more than the "boat" part.

It's the change in lifestyle that really gets most people. If you've always had unlimited hot and cold water, all the electricity you want, high speed internet, cable television, restaurant food, hardware and other stores 10 minutes away, toilets that drain into pipes that magically take everything away without your having to think about where it goes, automatic heat and air conditioning, etc, ... if you are accustomed to having all of the comforts life has to offer, it's going to be a real bitch to start living on a simple boat.

If you change your lifestyle first, then moving to the boat is really just a change of location.

What are you pretending not to know ?
