BTW, bubblers and circulators only really work well if the slip is deep enough. Shallow slips are far more likely to freeze over.
I have lived aboard my 30ft Excalibur sloop for 3 winters now. There are about 8 boats at the Marina in bowmanville,on the shore of Lake Ontario that do it. In the water. All have an electric bubbler,or a device with a strong electric powered prop on it to keep the water moving around the vessel.No ice in the coldest weather. Most also shrink wrap part of or all of thier boat.Some of them are pretty elaborate,with wooden doors,windows ect.I think you probably could do it on the hard,with plenty of power and good heaters..well tarped..you'll survive..yur a Canuck!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
