If I get comfortable handling the Camano alone then it has the potential for living aboard since couples somehow manage 6 month journeys on them. The single closet is big enough for warm weather. Winter clothes could be an issue but so is heading south in retirement.
The dock lines are rigged to be left behind in my slip. It is best for backing in to allow for easy forward escapes when I screw up. I rigged a line from the bow to midship to handle from the window by the lower controls. It can be tossed as a bow line or mid line.
I can also easily tie lines to the midship cleats from inside but it is awkward tying a line to the midship cleats from the side deck hanging on like a gorilla.
