To Float or Not to Float

Winter is around the corner and I have been trying to decide if I want to leave Zoe at her dock or pull and winterize her. Winter temps don't drop to low in Annapolis. We have bubblers at the dock and I am told a heat source in the boat is all that is required to keep things from freezing. Kat and I ran over this weekend and I put antifreeze in everything I could get to with one arm. Fortunately the boat is set up with ports that I can hook up to and pump the antifreeze through. The only thing I couldn't get to was the engine and the heat pump. They set low and I have a heater plugged in until my shoulder will allow me to climb down in the engine area.

If I pull her for a couple months I wouldn't have to drive over every couple weeks to check on her. I could also get the check valves working and do some Brightwork in the spring.

I'll think about it awhile longer.
