Livin aboard in Nova Scotia/Canada

Hi all,
I own a 42' wood epoxy cat which I originally had planned to move to Florida next fall and start living on the boat. I'm working as a crew member on a merchant ship on a 2 month on, 1 month off rotation. So will only be living aboard every third month.

Unfortunately I was diagnosed with cancer last summer and it seems that I will need regular medical treatment. While it seems to be possibly to schedule the treatment so it will meet my working schedule, I still need to receive it in Canada. Boomer, so here goes the plan to move the boat to Florida.

Anybody here has experience living on a boat in Nova Scotia during winter and would like to share their experience with me. I think my boat could handle the task. I'm more worried about myself. LoL.

You can also always reach me under cat-lucia at hotmail.com

Thanks in advance,
Jochen

Re: Livin aboard in Nova Scotia/Canada

Hey Jochen, sorry about the bad news. Where are you planning on keeping your boat?
I have a few friends that live aboard around Halifax, but stay under the radar at marinas.

Mark, many thanks for your quick reply. I am planning to stay in the Halifax region if that is possible. Currently I am keeping my boat during spring/summer season in a beautiful and very protected cove in Guysborough County. But during winter the cove is completely covered with ice and at the near by Government wharf I am not allowed to stay onboard.
