The boat spent a few seasons on the hard in the Mystic CT area and also the Long Island Sound. While a bit warmer than Champlain, hopefully it's "used to" the freezing/expansion issues already. When we store her up here over the next Winter season we'll be having her shrinkwrapped (with appropriate ventilation). Hopefully that will minimize moisture being introduced to small crevices
