My Morgan OI 41 was on hard for a few years in Longueuil (south shore of Mtl)

Even with the wood stove and 2 1500 W heaters, it was to cold to live on board.

Anyways, you won't find any place that will let you live aboard during winter time here.

salutations

After reading this I get the impression that its possible if you prepare. Anyone ever properly insulated the inside of a boat with at least thin foam? Boats aren't built for freezing weather for obvious reasons but theres no reason they couldnt be, if you have land electricity heating is easy and plumbing can be easily kept thawed, they have electrical bits to wrap around pipes and put in tanks that keep them above freezing. Perhaps this thread should be about how to rebuild a boat for year round miserably cold weather.

Thanks for all coments...rest asured iv sins ruled out the idea of livingabord winter, for one I did fall off the boat on its cradle, must have done a few Olympic figures in the process (it hurts)
this year iv wintered in my dodge caravan alternating between MRs heater (propane) and electic heater...it is not that bad once you get organised...however this experience will drive me to sail south next year for shure...will keep the caravan for whenever I come back to work (its a cheap rent) and mobile.
