It's a subtle pitfall, but a pitfall nonetheless...

Make sure to keep your boat in at least a near-sailable condition all the time. It's easy to get overly relaxed about that, and let too much stuff pile up requiring a major effort to get the boat seaworthy.

Next thing, you know, is that it becomes too big a hassle to sail your boat. So you never sail it.

Consequently, you wind up with a too small apartment and not a live-aboard sailboat.

This is, I expect, not your goal.

Good luck!
