Greetings,
Welcome aboard. Initially, rather than a/the boat, research the live aboard "lifestyle". Do you have any experience either boating or living aboard?

Welcome! Whereabouts in MD? Were you thinking you'd like to explore the lifestyle while in MD or something else?

So, are you looking for something for just three months or what?

Some links I have used in my research. Some of these are sailboat, some power, and some RV - all have that minimalist concept in common. You have to decide what works for you and your abilities.

(These guys are the ones responsible for my purchase of my own Nauticat 44, lol. All in all, it was a great boat and a good decision.)

Best of luck in your journey.
