There are several marinas on the dardenne slough near Grafton north of St. Louis, some boaters there go out anytime the ice is gone, I doubt they liveaboard year round, just live close.
Great, thanks! Been reading lots of books and tearing through numerous forums learning about trawlers... Guess I should take a spin through my own backyard!
