ICEBIRD is on a distinguished road
I have lived aboard my 30ft Excalibur sloop for 3 winters now. There are about 8 boats at the Marina in bowmanville,on the shore of Lake Ontario that do it. In the water. All have an electric bubbler,or a device with a strong electric powered prop on it to keep the water moving around the vessel.No ice in the coldest weather. Most also shrink wrap part of or all of thier boat.Some of them are pretty elaborate,with wooden doors,windows ect.I think you probably could do it on the hard,with plenty of power and good heaters..well tarped..you'll survive..yur a Canuck! Cheers BILL s/v ICEBIRD
