Sorry I haven't checked back here for a while. I'm getting ready to fly back to my boat in New Zealand in a few days.
I think I explained the reasons for moving aboard in the article and can only add that the boat is in fact going to be your floating home and the sooner the better. If you really want to go, I can't see any way your ties to land will be increased by moving aboard. If you--and I use that in the general sense--are kidding yourself and don't really want to go, you will always find excuses. I seem to recall a character in one of Steinbeck's books, either CANNERY ROW or TORTILLA FLAT, who was always building his boat and never quite getting it in the water.
