Yikes! This strikes me as one of those penny saved pound foolish things.


I can't even imagine the liability if you had a fire and burnt down a marina full of boats or hurt someone. And I mean the 'right' one shown above is only $30 at WM. I'm sure you could get it even cheaper somewhere.

But I'd go back to is it gas or diesel? If it's diesel just lose the fan.
