Re: how do i make it warm

Anything that generates an apreciable amount of heat takes a lot of energy. Human bodies produce the most amount of heat for the least amount of fuel.

Make some friends.

Anything else will cost money, and or be dangerous. Calalytic heaters sometimes come with built in co & o2 sensors to shut themselves off.

People have died in an open tent with a propane or alchohol heater inside. recently some boy scouts killed themselves that way.

I've found that in a small boat with a couple of people moving around it gets warm fast.

The safest heat on a boat is electric, ceramic, or oil filled electric heaters have low risk of fires because the element doesn't get that hot. You just need a supply of electricity.
