    That's a lot for a bilge heater to overcome. I'd be nervous too. I'm nervous just because my closed cooling anti freeze only tested to -30 the last time I checked it at the beginning of 2020.

    My slip neighbor uses a bilge heater and puts a small ceramic heater in the cabin in their boat. Makes me nervous for them. Two engines and a genny in these temps is a lot to cover with a little bilge heater.

    It's currently 42.5 F on the surface. It's dropped 3 degrees this week alone.

    should be easy enough to keep things from freezing with that water temp.

    I just texted one of the guys on our dock who has his bilge heaters on. He can see via wifi what the temperature is. He said the bilge has held steady at 43 and the cabin is holding at 65.

    In Springfield I think we set a new record at -15. Branson could have been slightly different.

    Wow, regular temp, that’s crazy. We have been about -1 or zero the last couple mornings. I am fully winterized, (central Illinois) but still hoping my bilge heater has kept it to 40 degrees consistently. I just have it going to keep it from getting that cold....

    It was -15 here at our place, but we are just North of Branson up on a ridge, off hwy 160. Most of Branson (and I think the lake) was -10. I sent my two teenagers out on the back deck with a gallon pitcher of boiling water to toss into the air and watch it vaporize.

    Incredible. I don’t know how you guys do it. Surely a rugged bunch, you are.
    I live in south Louisiana. It made 20 at my house. I thought the world was going to end!

    I will have to ask him. I didn't notice anything on the outside, but he may have done something on the inside.

    Yes...he had bilge vents covered. He also covered the openings for the galley and bathroom fan vents.
