Is anyone currently living aboard in Chicago? I know that you are allowed to live aboard during the summer months. Westec confirmed this for me. I am most concerned about the winter. I know in years past that you could rent a slip at Marina City on the south branch of the Chicago River, just below Van Buren. The river never freezes there. I am trying to find out who to talk to there, what the facilities are available during the winter, etc.
I would love to hear from anyone with some local knowledge.
