Re: [Amel] Comfort in NYC winter - old Maramu

Hello Eric,
I was thinking of leaving the boat at the Worlds Fair Marina, near where I work in Flushing. Do you liveaboard in Huntington Harbor during the summer? Have you ever stayed the winter aboard up here? My boat is still in Florida where it might be safer than up in NY during hurricane season.

Hi All, I am thinking of staying aboard my boat in NY harbor this winter.
The built in diesel heater needs to be rebuilt and the fans replaced but I
think I can bring it back to it's 1989 original system. That said... all my
Maramu has is some foam backed vinyl and carpeting glued to the hull for
insulation, in your experience will that be enough? or will I have to
insulate for the northern winter. Also will the 3" ducting running
throughout have adequate volume of air exchange to avoid the icing that I've
seen on other heated boats during the winter? Will I need backup electric
heaters? Any experience in how cold it needs to be to freeze the bilge and
the toilets? Thanks again, Ross Maramu #251 1989
