We have lived aboard for 15 years in Lake Ontario
(with occasional forays south), first at Port Credit Yacht Club and now Royal Hamilton Yacht Club. It's not very difficult once you learn a few tricks.
is lined with 1/2" foam insulation
, we have heat lamps under the bed
and under galley
soles and in the engine
compartment with a few little 12volt computer fans to move the air around. Our boat is fully shrink wrapped at the moment and we install clear plastic windows for daylight.
We keep a water
hose connected to the boat all winter with the over end capped and leave the hose in the water
, when we want water we pull up the hose connect it to the club house and fill the tanks
We built a pumpout cart on a wagon with a 12volt pump and empty our hilding tank into it. The sewage catch basin is only 100' away so we wheel
the cart over and drain it there. Theres more but we'll wait for questions.
