I've heard of people doing this while driving cross country in boats like mine, a Nor'sea 27. I read one couple say they did it during the summer where they slept in the cockpit and during the night, people would stop by and talk about how it would be nice to do someday.

If I was driving long distance with my boat, I would pull off to a rest stop and spend the night in the boat to keep from having to spend too much on hotels.
