Digiital is on a distinguished road
The key is to keep the boat warm all the time. Once it's cold its cold and take hours and hours to warm up again.

Last winter there was a few days/nights of -19C. Having the Oil Filled heater going full out and the 2 space heaters at 900watts I was able to keep the boat about 18C or so. But most nights I was on the boat with a tshirt on and the temp was about 21-22C.

I've learned from my first winter. I've done liveaboard for 3 summers and last yr was my first winter. Guess who is doing it again this winter
