How cold is your boat?

We had a ground frost last night, which is pretty rare round these parts, so I just nipped out doors with the infra-red thermo to see what's what tonight and took this reading off my tubes. Suprisingly the lawn was a few degrees warmer and the air temp is +3.1.

not down to last year's temp yet though when our car had a bottle of low temp washer additive concentrate laid on the car seat-and that was solid in the early morning! But the boat's b****y eberspacher has failed again(it doesnt like cold weather!) - a 12 hour shift is a bit like survival training at the minute! Please deliver the new part parcel farce...please!
