i wonder if someone lived on the boat and used a lot of heat, ie not electric heaters what it would cost to heat a 30ish foot boat for a normal east coast winter ( say new york to va area ). i dont mean heating for a weekend i mean for a winter. this alone could be a problem for those who run diesel heaters, as its kind of hard to run to the fuel dock when its closed or across a solid harbor.

this could also be a propane advantage as home depot sells propane year round. but i am sure a 5 gallon jug of diesel will last days too.

my cheapskate butt still like wood as its basicly free
