Thanks a bunch Joe...we just heard about the fabled sinking of numerous boats over at bluffers park a ways back....all sound advice...we just found 5 amp sealed oil
heaters at Canadian Tire. the marina we're going to had a power failure four fifteen hours once a few years back...now they have a back up system in place....knowing I can still fire up the jenny in a pinch with antifreeze inti lets me breathe a little easier...I guess after use I would just put antifreeze back into it?
We are also aware of ice chpping parties that occasionally happen on the rare cold, cold nights in Toronto ports
that have liveaboard communities. Our mercury
dipped below 50F last night turned on the little oil heater and one small ceramic and the temperature climbed back to 69 degrees aft cabin
, 70 degrees parlor and 68 degrees forwards. We'll pick up two more 5 amp oil heaters for below and one 12 amp for the parlor and galley
....still alittle anxious...but excited too...thanks for the feedback!!
