Live-aboard Communities in UK

Are there any reasonable live-aboard communities in the UK - southern UK would be nice (last year Whitehaven was a little chilly!). 

I've heard Ipswich may be reasonable - but was thinking more down towards Falmouth??

Appreciate any insights...

Cheers!

Hi Bill,
Friends have over-wintered, living aboard, in Ipswich and did so for a couple of years. I believe they have a small community most winters. We over-wintered in London at St. Katherine Docks for 3 winters and loved it and still have friends there. It varies in community size. Not sure about Falmouth, but I have friends who live there and would know. I have not heard of other possibilities.
My best, Dick Stevenson, s/v Alchemy
