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.
We had the ramp to the docks freeze one year. THe cart hit it... it was steep... the boat is now in St. Pete... enough said!
