Rob, you may have custody problems with a boat, even a houseboat, if the wife thinks about the kids going overboard into ice water with or without PFDs. What you can sail single-handed depends on what/how you can sail and you'll probably have to rerig the boat for it. A pilothouse is nice for space--but more space means harder to heat and way fewer boats to look at.
FWIW, Before you blow the bank on a boat, just make sure custody of the kids on the boat isn't going to become a killer.
