The low-down on Lake Michigan

Dearest Sailheads,

I'm thinking of moving my 35 foot sailboat to the Great Lakes area and a couple of obvious questions occur:

Do ya'll leave your boats in the water year round? Will getting froze into the ice damage a fiberglass boat?

What's the live aboard situation there? Do-able or verboten?

Yep. That's right. I'm a newcomer to the Great Lakes AND to operating in freshwater. So I'd be open to any and all thoughts on the matter, not necessarily directly related to these two questions.
