I strongly suggest that all boats need to be properly winterized and prepared for storage.  Drain water from engine, freshwater wash down tanks and hoses, anti-freeze in outside sink/wetbar P-traps, run engine after treating (or run fuel out) and Fog engine when shutting down.  All of the suggestions above are pretty good insurance against freezing, but they ALL will fail if the power goes out.  I'm not sure I would trust a $5.00 light bulb but the heater idea does sound easy enough.  At least if you lived close by the boat so as to keep an eye out.  My .02 worth.
