What the heck is that white stuff all over your boat?
Will it wash off?

This is a specialized 48hr coating that will identify any leaks or deficiencies in the superstructure of most vessels. I will be attempting to patent this wondrous substance soon!

When I bought my new boat, I made a deal with it that if it was a good boat, I would never let that happen to it.

So maybe you should think about installing windshield washers this year? WW antifreeze is only $3.00 a gallon here and every store has tons of it.

For a liveaboard snow is GOOD.

First it is excellent insulation , both heat and noise.

Second after a couple of days you can observe the melt pattern from heating the boat and see where the lousy insulation areas are.

My first multi hull melted all the snow from the cabin top , except on each cabin top rib.

After insulation was suspended between the ribs with trim , the melt pattern reversed.

The rib areas melted and the cabin roof stayed covered with snow.

Cheaper than an IR camera!with

We have 4" here ... less than Bob Coffer. He's in the path of the snow train and we are a bit up into the mountains.

Here's a bit of Alaska snow on Willy from several years ago.
