River also from the Great Lakes
if its possible with a ship that size. At this point singlehanded.. Hopefully I can find someone who wants to tag along.
Hello, Holden Magroine !
... I am new on this forum. And with interests I found you coming from Canda/NS.
Actually I am (still) living in Europe
. But plan a "living on a boat", too. If all plans go right way, it should be possible in 2016.
Because of different reasons I discovered by my best friend that East coast
might be a great place to live. - My friend was Dr. med in South America
and I accompanied her during her procedure being an immigrant in 2007/2008... with her whole family
. She is living in Toronto, more precisely she stepped down in Missisauga, and meanwhile living in Hamilton.
As I live for now in a 1.8 million metropol, 2nd biggest in Germany
, I'd prefer Nova Scotia because of its lower density of population... And as I was professional sailor in the 90th it has a wonderful maritim atmosphere (even knowing that the Lobster fishing
industries went through hard times). NS has a beautifully landscape, relaxed people... and "low prize living" (so I have noticed from far distance compared to other regions in CAN).
So hopefully here I can find some "support" by experienced ones to do the switch step-by-step.... and best, realize a "living on a boat". - I did already the online immigration test, and Canada government
said: You are welcome, come over ! :-)
But it needs lots of smaller steps to make an emigration-immigration to something successfully. Not too difficult anymore with the Internet
... and flight distance from central Europe
, London) to Halifax
is only 6.5 hours, roughly.
Many questions on the list, but for today I just wanted to knock on your door gently. Laters some more questions, maybe.
Have a good day !
warm greetings from "old Europe"
How is it going with your living on a Catamaran
? - I know it... I skippered professionally a 15 meter Catamaran
for a hotel
owner over two seasons and even lived in winter on it. Its a single
built Aluminium catamaran...
