Re: What do you do when you visit your boat on the hard?
I have been visiting my boat most weekends, no matter how cold it has been. Sometimes, it take a while for the space heater to get going when I arrive, but once warm enough, I am able to do a few things. Not too long ago, I installed new batteries, and a battery charger. This allowed me to keep the Airhead fan going for ventilation.
When I arrive, I connect the extension cord, get the space heater going, then pretty much go back to whatever project I'm working on. Last winter, I had the engine removed, took it to the house for part of a rebuild. Another boaty project could be redoing the interior cushions if needed. If you're looking to install a "composting head" now would be a good time as the cold will keep the smell from the old system from getting too bad when you remove everything. Changing lighting to LEDs is simple enough... if not expensive bulbs, then maybe some LED strips for additional/accent lighting. Pre-Season commissioning items, like changing out whatever filters on board.
Just some ideas.
