Oh, and although I'm sure the first post would be 'wear clothes with wrinkles, no one's going to care', I'm still a little OCD about that and want to see if I have any options.
Anything that uses a resistance load to make heat will be power-intensive. How about seeking out an antique iron from the pre-electricity days - the kind that you heat up on the stove? (BTW, cotton clothing gets clammy in the saltwater environment in a way that you wouldn't believe if you've only sailed in fresh water like the Great Lakes)
