New here

Hello everyone. Just wanted to say hello from eastern Canada. Specifically we live about halfway between the city of Moncton and Saint John New Brunswick. Living on our boat from end of April until late October each season. We are planning to go full time liveaboards hopefully in 2 years but for certain in 5. We Own a classic wood cruiser that i always am puttering with giving her a make over. We love boat life,the compacted coziness of our vessel,ease of cleaning and simple living far surpasses our landlubber life and all that entails home and acreage onership and upkeep. We look forward to chatting with like minded boaters powered or sail and are particlarly intersted on those brave souls living aboard full time in the east coast/colder climates. Cheers

Re: New here

Welcome aboard! My boat is wooden too, but I don't live aboard. I do sail in winter, and have stayed aboard when the weather was below freezing.

Re: New here

Welcome aboard!
Well I do live-aboard full time, but somewhat farther south than you, in Massachusetts, but it's all of 35°F here at the moment, but the diesel heater keeps her plenty warm. I've lived aboard 5 years now and love it (98.5% of the time anyway)
I do love wooden boats although, I don't have one... Harbinger is plastic lol
