Re: Forced Air Heating on PSC 34

have a 2004 PSC34. Espar unit in port cockpit locker all the way aft. Ducting to outlets throughout port side of vessel. Factory installed and works great. Make sure you can vary fan speeds and can control output. even in N.E. late fall sailing can make boat too hot if no way to modulate. If do hydronics have resovior so doesn't cycle so much and rigged with thermostats. Using Webasto hydronic system on the Outbound with separate AC unit for the saloon. . Think Espar may be better choice in small boat like the Crealock as it doesn't take much to keep it toasty. Surprised how low the current draw is.
