Capn Hand,

Yes, it was a typo... I did mean 140˚. Ideally, hot water temps should be at to 120-125˚ to prevent burns... Water at 125˚ can scald, but is far less likely to do so... temps above 125˚ are correspondingly more likely to scald and do so more quickly.

BTW, the hot water on some boats comes out at well over temperatures that can scald almost instantly... I've had to treat such injuries, and its not much fun.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
