Re: Legal aspects of living aboard in Nova Scotia (Canada)

Skip JayR - 'worthless land' in the nova scotia context = rural land away from significant communities, tree covered, not on prime coast. Land starved germans tend to love it, and locals can't understand why. Beauty (and land value) really is in the eye of the beholder.

You'll find all of the pristine untouched land and water you can imagine in Nova Scotia, and you really would find it dramatically unregulated compared to Germany. Hope you make it here. Be sure to message me if you make to Cape Breton, it would be great to meet you.

How a couple in Toronto made it onto a 43 ft boat ?

I fell over following video... which shortly describes a 43 ft sailing yacht (a Goshawk Ketch originally coming from Nova Scotia) and its owners... a couple which lived in Toronto a "normal life" on land.

Loosing the job, seeing the need to sell the house... Rob and Jay decided to tourn their life 180 degrees into a living on the boat even in cold Canadian winter.

As following short interview shows, it had been tough times over many years till the boat became a cosy home (together with their cat). Inspiring...
