    heads up... watch all those pipes and fittings that froze because ice is very distructive on plumbing. I learned that lesson winter camping in an rv. I had to redo whole plumbing system and sewer because of tons of split fittings. the majic freezeup is -17*f for an vehicle to freeze solid you can actually hear the pips go 'tink tink tink' when they are freezing. the small heater and open all cabinet doors will help freezing tremendously

    You might want to try something like this. I’m sure they have something similar in Norway. Water expands 9% when it freezes. Yes the pex pipe may withstand the freeze but the joints are probably less forgiving. When a pipe breaks from freezing it usually splits which means a lot of water can come in.

    Just a heads up, whatever the Norwegian version of West Marine is will certainly carry an anti-freeze that's eco-friendly and safe for human consumption. Folks who don't live-aboard use them to winterize their watermakers and (if needed) fresh water tanks. Depending on how much you're paying for electricity it might be cheaper than putting a heater under the sink. Also, and I'm sure you know this but potentially other viewers don't, as long as it's this cold be sure and check the bilge on a regular basis. The water in your bilge thru-hull there can freeze just as easily as the others, but since you don't see it you might not even notice. Which is unfortunate because a sink that doesn't drain and a head that won't flush are merely gross, while a non-functional bilge pump is second only to fire as the leading cause of sunk boats inside a marina.

    Hi guys. Richard & Val from Ladysmith B.C. trying to insulate my boat. I know you bought from Home Depot, USA. Instead of one inch square how about doubling up. Would that keep interior a lot warmer ?

    • Travis Williams

      Travis Williams

      2 dagen geleden

      The easiest way to tell is to put your hand on the insulation itself. If the insulation is cold to the touch, then you could benefit from adding more. However it's quite likely that after even a single layer of insulation your biggest source of heat loss is going to be the companionway. If you're a full-time live-aboard it's probably worth investing in a cockpit enclosure. Having no windflow through the cockpit tremendously cuts down on the companionway heat loss. Potentially it's even nice to have in the summer if you ever plan on heading south, as the weather gets quite a bit wetter once you cross the border down into the San Juans. If you're not a live aboard and just want to spend a few nights comfortably on the boat in the marina, a space heater or two and maybe an electric blanket are all you really need.

    www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-chimney-flue.htm The purpose of a flue is to provide a vent so that the byproducts of combustion do not back up into a room. The amount of draft can be controlled with the use of a damper mounted inside, allowing the user to strike the right balance between ventilation and heat loss.

I’m very interested on your winter in Norway, will be watching the next videos for sure!
