I guess that someone had already nailed the problem: You can't live in a boat the same way you live in a house that is 10 times bigger. That is not like a different option in what regards living in a house or a boat but, unless we are talking about a 30m yacht, a different option in what regards life stile.

If someone is trying to live in a boat the same way he lived in a house, well, he should not live in a boat unless he has the money to buy a big yacht.
