temps with IR thermomenter throughout the winter. Particularly in those hard to reach places.

When I was a kid, I once took a roach, put it into a small medicine bottle filled with water
, and froze it solid in a freezer.. To my total amazement, even after a week of being frozen, when the ice thawed the roach ran off with little apparent harm..
Even the Mythbusters found exposing roaches to as much as 10,000 rads of radiation did not kill them all (p.s. exposure to just 1000 rads is considered fatal to most humans)..
I somehow think a winter up in RI will rid your boat of those nasty little creatures.. flk k
