Yofy is on a distinguished road
Some liveaboards live in one marina for the summer and then move to another for the winter. Years ago we lived aboard on Frenchmens Bay in Pickering and several of our neighbours would move to Outer Harbour Marina in the beaches area for the summer. Later we had friends who lived aboard in Outer Harbour for the summer and moved to Marina Quay West for the winter.
Each of these folks did it so that the long commute was only for half the year. Also Outer Harbour Marina doesn't allow winter liveaboards.

When we lived in Frenchmens Bay the marina bubbled two docks for winter liveaboards. Other marinas like Port Credit required you to buy your own. Its worth checking because bubblers cost money and really hike your electrical bills. Also check what extra costs there are for winter liveaboards.

If it was me, I'd take this winter to drive around and check the different marinas out.
