We left Back Creek in Annapolis on December 13th and broke ice on our way out. We had our full enclosure on and a propane powered heater in the cockpit while sailing overnight down the Chesapeake to Norfolk. We went through 6 cylinders overnight, and within seconds after the heater going out, we could see our breath again. It was COLD, but tolerable with the enclosure and the heater. I would NOT recommend doing it any differently unless you bring arctic wear.
