Winter in-the-water storage?

OK, I know it is another stellar summer day, but I am thinking ahead to winter storage options and wanted to hear from anyone that has a suggestion for a good in-the-water spot. I live in NH, but looking for anywhere from RI north. We've got a 47 Jeanneau and I am hoping that being in the water will be better for the boat than on stands and will give us an early start in the Spring. Thanks in advance!

Winter in the water..Northeast

The real problem here is the potential for terrible storms. We just had one.
If you can find a protected mooring, fine.
Then there is the problem of ice formng and damaging your hull.
THe chap up in Deer Isle, NB has pretty protected water PLUS a large tide
to help alleviate ice

Found a spot

Omaho5,
I actually ended up finding a spot nearby, without having to go up to New Brunswick. I am staying in the water at Badger Islands Marina East (aka Kittery Landing Marina). It is on the Piscataqua River in Portsmouth, NH. There is enough river flow that bubblers are not needed and the protection between Badger's Island and downtown Portsmouth has been great. I check on her every couple of weeks, but despite the high winds we've had this winter already, everything is fine. There are a number of liveaboards there too, so I feel secure knowing there are people around. I am just trying it this winter, have not stayed there over the summer. With the heavy flood and ebb, it looks quite tenuous getting on and off the dock except at slack, but we'll see how that goes as Spring approaches. There's also a few moorings on the river there too that might be options for some folks.
-Tom
