Boat De-Icer is Used To Guard Against Ice Damage During the Winter

When you think of de-icer, usually cars come to mind. You might need some de-icer for your windshield when it gets so cold the ice won't chip away. However, when ice and boats collide, the damage can be quite severe.

One of the major threats to boats in the winter is floating ice blocks that can impact boats with great force and even damage the boat's frame causing leaks. And the last thing you want is ice water flooding a boat.

Ice that sits on the dock can also cause problems as the dock shifts or sinks and scratches the outside of the boat.

For every one boat that sinks at sea, four boats sink in their clip.
