Do it! I've seen people living aboard tie up at a mooring buoy and use a stand up paddle board to go to work, but I'm not sure how much fun that would be in the rain...

I was thinking the same thing too....

When I was considering a job too far away for a daily commute from home. Mines a 27, no fridge, has a/c but no heat (winter! almost forgot about that), no shower, the list goes on. OK, so after a quick reality check I realized that this was a completely ridiculous idea --the job probably wouldda sucked anyway.

To get the amenities to live aboard comfortably (still a compromise on a boat) would mean a much larger boat, out of the 6k price range you are looking for.

Maybe you could finagle an OPB deal?

Good luck and get back to studying!

i was planning to live on my 45' starrett jenks.... but then i met i nice girl, and i stay with her now. and keep the boat as a back up plan. it was especially nice when i was rebuilding the engine to get out of the mess and sleep in a nice clean house. my boat has everything one would need for living. head with a macerator, ac, generator, hot water, cold plate fridg/freezer. the downside is that almost all of those things have had a turn of not working. with the right planning it's doable.. just don't budget yourself to tight. things break, and it's always the expensive stuff that breaks first.

PS: girls like the boat...
