Salt

Happens a lot here in Boston
I use salt And antifreeze
After 6 hours the salt will have melted the ice and then the Anti freeze kicks in if you cannot pump out immediately If possible As soon as melted just pump out with a manual pump into a bucket and throw overboard Add fresh anti freeze in the bilge
