slip de-icer

Postby holomoku » Fri Aug 19, 2011 3:42 pm

I'm planning on staying in the water longer this year.
Maybe all winter. I'm docked on Rockhold creek in Deale , MD .
What de-icer do I need? Any experiences/recommendations appreciated.

Spencer,

I've been in Rockhold creek for 20 years; you don't need one. It may freeze, but not enough to do any harm. I have one, but I quit using it many years ago.

Yours was the only cat the only cat in the marina today; everyone was out! Yet I've not seen any of the owners all season; we keep just missing. A shame.
