Re: Canadian sailing + heating ?
The best advice so far: dress against the cold.
Blankets and quilts/sleeping bags on the berths, fleece/sweaters, a good hat and especially windbreakers on deck.
Boots to keep your feet warm and gloves for your fingers.
We launch the middle of May and haul the middle of October and have never felt the need for any heating on board.
My wife is a bit of a princess when it comes to being warm, but she hasn't complained yet.
Sure it can be brisk some mornings, but that just inspires you to get the coffee on quicker.
