hot water

thats the problem, cost vs real hot water. the electric water heater i have is a five gal capacity and with the issue related to calcium build up on the heater elements and limited volume, and weight it is really not a good solution unless you like warm water. it does have circulation heating off the engine but that is only of limited value especially away from the dock and with diesel at 3 - 4 dollars a gallon and going up long term the off set of the diesel cost against the initial cost of the heater needs to be taken into account.
