We also use one of the larger black cats. Keeps our boat warm. Always leave a crack open and ave a CO monitor on board for safety.

We will be sailing usually till mid Dec.

Interesting. I'd never seen one of these. Do they heat the entire cabin or just like a v-berth/aft cabin berth?

Might look into one for the early spring to take the chill off if we get as early a start as I'd like to.

Heats the whole cabin well enough. We dont keave on all night and have a CO detector also, but in the AM it Makes things toasty fast in the salon. Fans help it get to the V berth.

Here is the one we have. Has a internal fan so we dont run the cabin fan.

They make year round sailing possible when added to an enclosed cockpit.
