[QUOTE=sailingdog;203397]It may not be enough to burst a hose, but it might be enough to damage a seacock. Just because the damage is relatively minor, doesn't mean it won't sink the boat with little warning come spring time.QUOTE]

If it is cold enough to freeze there is a 90% chance that the boat isn't even in the water. In New Jersey that number is maybe 99% chance of the boat not being wintered in the water. If the boat is in the water in the winter, it is most likely being lived on and heated. So there should be no chance of sinking a boat. In addiction I still have a hard time conceiving of even a 2 ft hose filling with enough condensation to burst a hose or a seacock.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
