I hate a theif!
You say you were in Florida? Were you at the Miami Boat Show? I was down there about the same time sounds like. Went down on the 6th, went to Key West for a few days, then to the boat show, then drove over to the west coast to Marco, Naples, Ft Myers, etc. I love south Florida!

RE: liveaboard new to this forum

We have three ice eaters around the boat . I would not like any ice around my hull.

WHY?

I lived aboard for almost 23 years in the NYC area and never had the slighest problem with icing in.

The bubblers , even with a foam cored hull which is usually the quietest the air bubbles made the boat sound like a fish tank inside.

Harm from ice was common on wood boats as the first freeze would freeze the water , all the way into the cotton .

Any movement of the boat would start the cotton , but the ice would support the boat , till the thaw.

Hassles with liveaboards would come from thru hulls not deep enough , so the sink or toilet would stop.

The best fun was one year at the Worlds Fair Marina , when a fellow with a fine Huckins got a young babe that decided the boat was too spartan.

She chose nice pink toilet paper , which created a nice pink pile next to the boats head discharge which was above the WL a foot or so.

3 ice eaters Why ? The ice can get so thick you can walk across it . We are in a cove with alot of freshwater . With you guys in the city you never get ice like we get. I have seen big ice come in and move a whole set of slips in a marina.

i would wrap the boat if it was me. You want to keep the ice off of it plus its alot warmer with the wrap on. Your heating bill will be alot cheaper .

Did the WFM , 45 ft Trimiran "CHAOS" in 69 and 70.

After a 6 year "vacation" (furlough , so sailed the Carib , and started a boat building operation), went to City Island for summers and New Rochelle in winter.
