Re: Frozen Bilge, Possible Prevention
Water comes down our mast and put a remarkable amount of water in the bilge over 5 months. We can not install a garboard plug, as the keel is pretty long, so we just pull a through hull that happens to be between the mast and keel. It will drain most of the water.
No water, no freezing. Mostly.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
