Re: Canadian sailing + heating ?

I have sailed every month in the PNW. I do not use a heater at night while I sleep. I use a -10,0 C sleeping bag all year long.

During the day, poly underwear, fleece, very good foulies, boots (DuBarry - a real luxury). synthetic liners in rubber gloves. watch cap. Good to go.

I have sailed on a boat with a wood fireplace: 1939 Norwegian fishing boat 72 foot gaff rigged ketch.
