I am still very interested of knowing how many de-icer set-ups there are out there. In the almost 2 years since the OP, there has been 700 views, and only 3 other replies....why? are there no de-icers in usage ?
OK, let me re-phrase my question to read: What do you think of using de-icers? Why are you, or your marina, using them? What do they costs to operate? How much attention do you (your club) need to pay to the set up? Are they worth it ? How long will they last?
Would it not be just as economical to haul out
your boat or your docks yearly , a thing you need to do anyway ???...or do you need to "dry" your boat, and/or docks every once in a while?
