Re: Downside of living aboard
Couple endorsement of the above.
1. If your boat isn't equipped and prepared to sail, there is no point living aboard an actual boat. Get a houseboat.
2. You should equip your liveaboard like it was your home. Do you like air conditioning a home? Some do, some don't.
3. The not too big, not too small discussion is good too. Again, do you need to sprawl out at home or are you comfortable in a studio apartment. Different strokes for different folks.
As far as maintenance goes, if I have to drop an unexpected few grand on the boat, I may be annoyed at the expense. However, I then immediately want to get out and see if it sails better. I've never replaced a driveway, roof, landscaping or furnace and given a damn about giving it a whirl.
