Just as we thought Spring was coming, mother nature gives a stern reminder.
My US Yacht 25 is moored here on the Columbia river. We finally got our cold spell and the entire marina was frozen over in 2 days time, from wind and chill. I have a heater and light bulb going inside. A neighbor has a bubbler going 3 slips down on the opposite side. I went and checked on her today, thought of breaking up the ice. No go, it's too thick to break up. Then I wondered if breaking it up would be a good idea anyway. Several boats (sail and motor) are in the same shape as my boat.
My question...we're 20 deg. below normal and we should be gradually warming over next few days. What's done is done. Any harm to the boat?
