On Thursday I went to check on the boat because it had snapped cold to -11 degrees. There was 2-3 inches of snow on the boat. The snow on the hatch had turned to ice and I could only open the hatch about a 1/4 way before being blocked with ice.
Got down into the boat and the bilge was solid ice. I poured some antifreeze, and got a heater going.
Leaving the boat, I could not get the hatch closed (it was jammed with ice). I forced it with my hands and the plexiglass broke!
|Pieces can probably be glued back on|
The flash cold had frozen a lot of the harbour.
Hopefully get the cover on this weekend!
