Live aboards in Toronto?

Hey all, I have a Challenger 24, which I am planning on living on as soon as it goes back into the water next spring. That won't be a problem, but what do I do during next winter? Is there anyone who lives aboard in Toronto all year round? Any suggestions/ideas?

Thanks
Bridget

Live aboard in Toronto

Bridget, at a guess there are a couple hundred of us who live aboard in Toronto all through the year. That I know of, there's at least one marina in Hamilton, Port Credit Harbour Marina, Queen Quay West and another marina in Frenchman's Bay that take year round live aboards.

What's it like in the winter? I was only able to be on my boat on the weekends during the summer, but about in cold weather?

It doesn't take much to heat a 24' boat, even on the coldest nights. One portable space heater should do the trick on most nights, plus an electric blanket. Most of us shrink-wrap our boats so in the daytime it's usually warm enough to even leave a hatch open; many nights, too. (Should probably continue this thread in the "Living Aboard" forum.)
