Re: Wintering in northern Europe

Yes, you are right not in custom free zone. So it means that anyway you may expect controls when crossing border.

Schengen.
After that, it really doesn't matter who is warmer, colder or indifferent!

Re: Wintering in northern Europe

It's funny. For us Europeans, Schengen is a big step forward: when crossing borders, we don't have any more to go through immigration. We may arrive in a foreign country in the place and time that are convenient for us, without having to take the opening hours of immigration offices into account.

But for a few visitors who would like to stay more than 90 days, it's complicated...

Re: Wintering in northern Europe

Interesting thread. Just for sake of reference we live aboard half time and keep the boat on the Delaware. Our marina had four live a boards and a few that did it get pulled. We have a steel hull as did two other live a boards. We did fine, even though at times it got to 1 F. For about a week or two we could walk around the boat on the ice. We are in a canal so we get good ice floes. Not all fiberglass boats had bubblers, and all did fine.

We use an Espar for heat and only use shore power to keep the batteries up. We do have electic heat for emergency, should the Espar fail as I did not winterize the engine.
