Bubblers draw a fair bit, maybe 10-15 amps. They do require some supervision to guard against chaffing, wires working loose etc.

The other issue with Lake St Claire can be severe spring flooding. Naturally occurring ice dams can form on both the Detroit and St Claire Rivers. Typically the Coast Guard will assign 2 full size ice breakers to the area (one American and one Canadian) to break up the ice dams, but flooding does happen.

As a boat owner, I wouldn't be thrilled about a boat staying in the water over winter there and i think if I was a marina owner I might be even less thrilled about it.

Don't get why they won't just crane you out.

Sooner or later, given that tomorrow is December- sooner, they are going to have to crane you out. If your boat sinks at the dock, the marina has a real problem on their hands. You have documented all of the emails from the marina owner? Somebody is going to be on the hook for clean up if the boat sinks.
