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.

Gus, Constitution marina has a great LA community. Nice shoreside facilities too.

Re: Boats On Ice!

We have a way to deal with the snow/ice here. 9 F below (real not wind chill). At that temperature, the pink stuff turns hard. I just show up after a storm & pop the snow off the tarp. Some auslander asked why we just don't leave it in. Muskegon is on a frozen lake with the channel to Lake Michigan frozen including the outer harbor. We won't see open water until March or April. Last snow in 2012 was in May.
