Best just park your boat somewhere from time to time, and fly home to make cruising funds. Plenty of people do that.

No drinking, that's how you save money while going to school. My wife and I are in our twenties and we're moving aboard in a week and cruising. Our option was the urban lifestyle or cruising dreams. City life is way overpriced.

Good on you for choosing the path less taken, I'm sure it will make all the difference.

Advice: research and learn as much as you can about boats, and buy the most capable sailing boat for your budget.

Life's a dream, live it!

I don't understand this. If your living on your boat, then what is this "home" that you fly to? Are you saying that you would maintain two homes,- a house and a boat? This doesn't sound economical.
