I'm planning my career out as a lobsterman in Maine and was thinking about a liveaboard lobster boat. It would be based on a 50' open stern but customized with a larger cabin so that the actual lobstering area is about 20' of total length. My buddies' 39' Dixon open stern has about 21' of work space and the rest for a small cabin and helm area. I would assume I could at least get a full size bed, shower, bathroom and galley out of the 30'. Money won't be much of a problem as I will work up to this design over the years.

Has anyone heard of someone attempting/succeeding in this idea?
