We used one too plus we put "Damp-rid" all around to absorb moisture. You learn when living aboard that heat will generate moisture on a boat in the winter and you have to prepare for it. That is why we'll be in San Diego I don't want to have to shovel the dock every again. lol I remember shoveling the top of the boat one year because the snow was so heavy I worried about the weight on the decks and the top.

One good thing though with the 20kw diesel generator we had on board we were never with out power. I used to have an external plug on the boat so the people on the sailboat next to us could plug in when the power was off. Wasn't hard to put in and man did they appreciate it. She could cook great Canjun food and that was her way of saying thanks, miss those meals.
