Could you PM or email
me regarding living aboard
in Kingston? I'm making the move this summer once house sells, have been a Kingstonian for sometime and am finally pulling the trigger on a life on water
Any information is appreciated in terms of tips/tricks, Yada Yada.
If you do not reply, I understand. Don't want to take to much of your time. Just a few specific questions about how to go and whereabouts to go.

does a good job too if need be. 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
live aboards in Ontario.
check us out. you could always pm if you wanted a visit.
