6) taking out loans
7) getting a PO Box to recieve mail

The list goes on, but you get the point. There are ways around the Physical address requirements of these items, but its justban extra hassle.

Yes, I agree with that.. I use an UPS store as physical address but I found have some problems with government papers...
I could add the always-dirty-marina-showers/bathrooms...

Re: What Don't You Like About Living On A Boat?

It's hard to do some projects while living on the boat. Right now, I have the cabin sole panels in my storeroom where I am sanding them down and refinishing them and the bimini on the floor in the spare bedroom where I am doing repairs on it.

Harder, but not impossible, to do while living on on the boat.

Being away from grandchildren.
Lights on big powerboats that illuminate the whole anchorage conveniently obliterating my view of the stars.
No dishwasher (only when we have lots of company for dinner).
Crocodiles.
