Re: Canadian sailing + heating ?

A solid fuel heater is good for short term use, if you're comfortable with one. There are several small woodburning bulkhead stoves. You'll likely need a 3" pipe through the cabin top.

Our fireplace is a little blast furnace and supplies a lot of fast dry heat. It's simple, nothing to break, nothing to maintain.

In Maine, we use it mornings and evenings for a few hours, spring and fall, and never run it overnight.
