Live Aboard in Germany

Hi to all fellowmen sailors,

We are considering with my wife spending some time and living on board in Germany and any advice would be really appreciated, particularly with recommendations for the marina as it may take us a up to 6 months to complete some other projects we are planning.
A marina with acceptable conditions, as we it looks like the period will be in the winter starting from October onwards, but want to get prepared well in advance and plan the timing.
Maybe even do some small repairs on the boat but mainly interior, so no need for taking her on a dry dock, unless there is a dry dock where is allowed to live on board.

As we are on a sail boat and we wouldn't like to lay down the mast, so rivers are out of the plan if needed to pass bridges.

Thank you all in advance,
Best regards,
Todor

I would forget Germany for the winter on a boat, if you have any other choice.



You can't do any outside work for month, because it's too frigging cold here. If you live onboard, you can't even do inside work properly (because it is in your living space and you and your stuff can't "just spend a few days outside").


Even if it not about the boat work, why spend the winter freezing your ass off in a marina?

Hi Paul,
thanks for the opinion. We well know that it is cold in the winter, particularly in north Germany. No other choices, as my other projects are anyway linked with North Germany.
So any advise as asked would be appreciated. As to the interior works, they are electrical, so not an issue at all.

best,
Todor
