This article is the result of another post on Facebook, asking for videos and groups to learn about living aboard.
This Youtube series is probably the best. It's The Complete Small Boat Liveaboard Series by Idyllic Dreams. He's got 34 (as of August 2023) short videos, each about 9 minutes long. Every one specializes in one single topic on living aboard a small boat. While I recommend the link above and you watch them all, you can also jump to any of his videos directly below.
Here's a playlist of random videos I saved. Some may be of interest, some not. But those videos would link to their creator's who will have more videos.

If you are looking at post-apocalyptic sailing, you'll need to know celestial navigation, this series taught me: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLah9ocjQNN0Zr7-oKE58wTzXE4XaQU64E
(note, it's complicated, and if you're not thinking post-apocalypse, then just use your GPS and chart plotter)
