Im moving onbaord end of month on a mooring in Tampa Bay. Should I get a USPS POBOX or the kind with the "Real" address? Does it matter for the insurance, drivers liscense or anything else.

On another note: Does the boat become my legal home?

I used MCCA Mail Forwarding in Palm City, FL as my official address for a number of years. From this address I obtained my FL drivers license, registered and insured my boat and automobile, and even used it when I renewed my passport. Never had a hassle.

I think the key to all this is being able to show a street address. A P.O. box is not a street address. However, you can have your mail sent to a mailbox rental place for which you will have both a street address AND a box number.

This method always worked for me.
