Don't know if it will be as hard winter as this year but seems acquiring a de-icer won't hurt...

Look on craigslist in the spring. Or drive around and look at the bulletin boards at the yacht clubs.
But also, if you are going to stay in a marina, often the winter slip fee includes de-icing. My marina puts one in for each double slip section. I have only kept a boat in the water
one RI winter. We weren't living aboard
, so it was a pain. We had a lot of snow that winter, and I was always going down there and shoveling.
