I've been in Cleveland boating for about 30 years.
There are seasonal liveaboards and you might get lucky there, but I don't recall hearing about anyone living aboard year round. Ice and snow being the major factor.
Not only will you be iced in, you will also have to deal with the snow. The biggest problem would be going to and from your boat and could spend a couple snowed in days there. The snow removal at those places is poor because it's low priority and rareness of year round liveaboards present.
Most marinas are seasonal. Winter ice at the marinas can be a problem.
When the ice breaks, and flows North it can take a marina with it.
Just like it completely took out Rocky River a few years ago, wiped out the warf at Edgewater park and sunk or tore off a few slips in receint years.
Thats just mostly of what I know.
There me be somebody out there (willing or unwillingly...lol...) living on thier boat year round, but none that I'm aware of. Most Winters on the lake are pretty nasty.
