I like the Dickson heater very much. A ton of heat, and no monoxide.

PDQ, I see you have a new Dickenson Newport heater Sail Delmarva: October 2009 I installed the same model a couple years ago on my boat. How do you like yours?

I put in a monitor a the same time, and not a peep. I have noticed the air getting bad just from cooking when I'm buttoned up tight, so I am a bit nervous about that. I have heard some very frightening stories regarding boats and monoxide. I think the last story I read was a fridge that was acting up.

As for following someone, in a sailboat (slow), and waiting for them to fillet the fish... that's nearly entrapment and certainly would make me question why he waited. So that they would clean them and have no defense? I would like to watch him explain that in front of his childrens' class and see if he is embarrassed. If I were the judge I would ask "why the delay?"

But I'm glad to read the note - a trap I could easily fall into, since a cruiser is NOT going to the dock first. For a cruiser, anchoring is the same thing. Dumb.
