Liveaboard trial run
Well you can probably see that I am not the best person to respond to you as I live aboard in Hawaii-Both my husband and I have jobs, commute, work on the boat, sail and I knew in the first minute that it was the perfect life for me...that being said I think you are on the right path. You might as well deal with the smaller living space, galley adjustmests and strange noises on a daily basis first before you add the novelty of WINTER (yikes!)Because we are close to resorts here we kind of get that "vacation feeling" a lot- As martha would say "its a good thing!"
As a former teacher..I think it is really not a "test" at all...don''t worry be happy...you get to do what you want!The weather issue will be a perspective that you will have for experience. I would suggest you wander to the marina you will be living at and walk up and down the docks talking to people and asking them questions...we boat people LOVE to talk at the dock - in fact there are many times I don''t even make it to my car to go to the store!I am waylaid on the way. The liveaboards at your marina will have more specific answers to your questions-
As I look at your post I think you are realy asking much different questions...and those are.. AM I INSANE!!!!????AM I DOING THE RIGHT THING?????!!!!WHAT THE H-- AM I DOING?????
No one has those answers but you...however something that I feel is this...I did not want to be 90 years old and wonder what it would have been like if I had done it...
Good luck and let us know how it goes...
