In the eight years we have been doing this ( not all of it in Kingston) we have never suffered a power outage. We build a little *house* over the cockpit, add extra insulation to the appropriate places apply heat and there we are. Frankly I lived a few year in an old farmhouse which was far colder.
It was -28C recently, my biggest complaint was having to go out to work. I would rather have stayed in, that would not have different in a house. One needs to arrange the slip well in advance as space is often limited here...there is a surprising number of marinas with winter live aboards in Ontario.
check us out. you could always pm if you wanted a visit.
Hi Witchcraft, I'm a 23 yearround liveaboard and looking for the option in Kingston / Gananoque with a possible move there. Can you please email me at I'm looking to relocate my senior Mom and my work somewhere where she and I can be in the same town so I can take care of her as she further ages (she's 86 now) and I can stay on my sailboat solo still for winters. Thanks!
