Re: Heat Help

Those reverse cycle systems cost $2K and up. Dockside, at your home marina, a space heater from the local hardware store is $50. Which would you rather put the wear and tear on (and ultimately have to replace?) We use one of those oil-filled guys that looks like an old-fashioned radiator - develops lower temp than a regular space heater, and therefore less problematic to leave. We also have a Webasto AirTop 2000 for when we're away from the dock.
