Pretty hard to do

We lived onboard over a couple of winters in New York City and being in the water helps a lot since it is not much below 30F (salt) and the air near the surface is kept a bit warmer too. On the hard the boat would be exposed on all sides to air that could be -20 and colder. Don't know if people live on boats all year in Montreal - there are lots of people doing that in Toronto which is similar in terms of weather (other than snowfall).

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Ainia is back in North America for the first time since 2010. Currently in Long Island Sound.
