If it's effective a 12V fan to move air around might be a good idea (but if you're primarily daysailing that's not a big issue either)

I'd double check that that particular heater is OK'd by your insurance carrier...
I was planning on replacing or just removing the heater eventually. I don't think it is very safe to use.

So I bought it! Had a great sail on Monday. Thanks for the help everyone. I am sure I will be asking questions about how to maintain things in the near future.
