The Big Chill
Updated: Mar 5, 2018
When I asked the yard in Travemunde, Germany whether it snowed much there in winter I was told "normally we get a few centimeters but it never lasts long". Looks like this year is not so normal! The yard staff inspect the boat daily and have confirmed the central heating system on board (which is set to keep the temperature on board at not less than 2 degC ) is working well. This should ensure that nothing on board (especially pipes full of water) freezes up and potentially gets damaged. The lack of snow on the wheelhouse roof is likely due to the heated on board temperature.
