This is the "Cruisers Forum" isn't it? I prefer and use that term, whether or not I happen to be living aboard
at the time. Even when I was tied to the dock for long periods I always thought of myself as a "cruiser," though I might use the term "sailor" around people who weren't into boating
because they think of cruising as something to do with bars and trolling for a date, and motorcyclists think of you as a Harley rider.
you don't want to call yourself a "liveaboard" because that is a legal
definition that makes you subject to more onerous laws in some places. And, there are lots of people that sneer at liveaboards for various reasons.
