Yes they are big and ugly, but have an adjustable thermostat and 3 power settings. I've used one in my cold bathroom for 5 years. If you need a fan to move hot air around, buy a fan. It will be much less susceptible to clogging than the little one in the heater.
An alternative solution. Love it. Thanks.

By the way, Hugo and I checked some of the thru-hulls last night. They were at 34.6 degrees on a very cold night. Seems the ice eater has warm-ish water flowing past the boat.

We did not go sailing -- the fairway was solid ice. 4 inches thick right behind the boat. Guess I need an outside webcam so I know when the next sailing session can be.

Regards,
Brad
