South Florida is a funny place. Nowhere else in the world could someone casually bring up the topic of owning a boat without anyone batting an eye. If someone way up north or in the Midwest mentioned owning a boat, you may think of a fishing dinghy. Of course, we use our boats to go fishing out here, too. But for some of us, owning a boat – and living on it -- is actually a lifestyle choice. While it may seem like a fun and exciting one at first, the truth is, living on a boat may be something that’s best reserved for fantasy if you’re not properly prepared for it.
