When are you officially retired? I have the day I resigned my job and left, but then since then I've still been involved in business. However, I consider what I do now more a hobby. It's by choice and because I enjoy it, not working for anyone else. I don't have to go into an office every day or report to anyone. So in my mind, I'm retired.

Same with my wife, she doesn't teach for a single school or district anymore but she loves designing and implementing reading programs for schools, school systems, orphanages and organizations. But it's all choice so retired.

As to live aboard, we've chosen to spend about 2/3 of our time aboard. Well, plus we boat at least a third of the time when home.

I think it's a state of mind. When you can do what you want when you want.
