I wouldn't agree unless there was something in it for me. Having wifi available would influence my choice favorably.

The idea of living on a boat seems very exciting to me. I just have to learn how to swim first. :D

I would 100% do it for a time. Living on a boat and being able to go where ever you want is amazing. I love pulling into a port and already being at "home" in what boat I arrived on.

Yes i would agree to it but for a limited duration of time. I am a kind of a person who cannot satisfy myself with confinement at one place. So i dont think long time frame at sea or a permanent living there would work for me anyhow.

That's an interesting question and it's hard to answer. If my entire family was going, then yes, I'd have to go. If not, the choice would be much harder because no matter what, my family would be torn apart.

Yes, I agree because population is increasing day by day and a time is going to come when we have to make houses over water and it is happening

I may, if the conditions are good enough. I just love the water, but I don't think I could survive without land.

I don't think I would survive on the sea on day. I like going on walks and meeting new people, and these things would not be present on a ship

I've lived next to the sea my whole life. I can't swim but I've always admired the horizon. I'd enjoy a few years sailing the oceans.

I would never agree to life on sea. I would much rather just stay on dry land.

I think I would agree to a life at sea. Yes, there are dangers but there are also advantages. I think I could handle seafood for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If not, there are always ports to stop in. Everything is connected by water so there is the ability to see new locations.
