Heating the Cabin
« on: February 18, 2017, 07:48:51 PM »
Does anyone have a good trick for heating the cabin on a cold day while anchored?  It's not always warm and sunny on Puget Sound.

Get a Mr. Buddy propane heater. Heats up a 19  cabin in just moments, has tip protection and  oxygen depletion cut off.

I put a solid fuel heater on my 23. Worked great. Another option would be to build a removeable flue to vent the origo stove out a porthole.

We took a Coleman propane heater, drilled holes in the base, and zip tied it inside a milk crate for added stability. It heats the cabin and helm of a 24ft. grady-white so I can drive without having my hands frozen on the wheel during the late fall/early winter fishing season. Sure it'd heat a 23 cabin and has the low O2 sensor. On Amazon for about $50.

We used a Mr. Buddy on our 23 and still use it on the 25.  Works great.

BTW, we're headed in our CP25 from Rockland Maine to Rogue Island off Noreast Maine this June.  Anyone been there with tips?  Cruising Guide says once past Schoodic Point it's a brand new cruising world.
