Agreed. It takes days below 32F (don't know about them funny units you mentioned). Wind chill matters not a nit to the inside of a boat. Fiberglass don't sweat or exude moisture (wish it did!).

The rocking motion in a slip also keeps the water molecules bumping (friction - though miniscule) and further reduces the tendency to skim over and ice up.
