If the boat is insured, you may want to check with your insurance company beforehand to confirm the boat would be covered if it became locked in ice. Insurance companies usually frown upon owners knowingly leaving insured property at significant risk. In the event of a loss, use of the bubblers might be important to show you made a reasonable effort to protect the boat from damage. If self-insuring . . . one would have to be a brave soul indeed to let a fiberglass boat become engulfed in that much ice.
