Cold weather procedures - Camano 31

Anybody have any set procedures for "winterizing" a Camano 31? We plan to still use the boat but we want to try to avoid freezing and mold issues. I have drained the cockpit shower line, keep low-watt heat/fan running in engine room and salon (plus regular fan), Damprid bags inside. Anything else?

Where are you located. For a mid Atlantic location you should be fine with what you describe. But not for the NE.

Pacific Northwest. Temps may dip to low to mid teens a few times a winter.

Then you are ok with what you are doing. You have similar conditions as NC where we kept our boat for five years, I just kept a space heater in the engine room and main salon set very low. I planned to start the gen if I ever lost power in very cold conditions, but that never happened.

Now in RI where we keep our boat now, different story.
