OK, I think you're getting annoyed at the frivolity, but the original question belongs on a technological-research-type forum. Your request is SO far from even cutting-edge available products, that you quite frankly deserved the ridiculous answers that you got. Compact, non-combustion, non-electric heat sources? C'mon man, where do you think you are? (Oh, saw your post count, you don't know where you are, do you?)

(Hmm, apparently I am cranky today....)

Well, I know where I am, I am reading this place for quite some time and noticed that from time to time there is a useful message with interesting info in it.

Yes, it is very, very seldom.

Still, may be there is someone here with really inquiring mind and have something to say?

Meanwhile I enjoy reading about adventures on a pink boat and how to aim into one-inch bowl.

I can wait; the boat is on the drawing board yet.

Beside, isnít it ridiculous to go around the World on a 3-m-long boat? So, the solution could be of the same nature.

a possible solution is to install a paddle wheel on the stern which will drive an armature in a magnetic field. This may produce enough electricity to drive a friction heater which are very small but how much heat does one need in 3 meters. The taff log example resides outside of the boat thus preserving valuable space. My off shore experience suggests that one may need more than one becuase some fish become interested in the trailing logs.

Sorry, I am having a frustrating day, which is not a very good excuse. Yes, going around the world in a 3m boat is ridiculous, but not really funny IMO.

(deleted most of my this post before submitting, obviously still cranky.... hey bartender!)

Rev,
Just want to point out one more thing to you. On the Giulietta Contest post, there is a mock picture of Giu in a very gay spandex one-piece suit... You can see the guy's pecker in it. Anyway, under the picture, you wrote "Speeewwww." Then, beneath that, you have your sign off, which says, "It's supposed to be hard. The 'hard' is what makes it great..."
I know: it's an unfortunately and inadvertent placement. I just didn't want anyone to get the wrong idea about you...

Lubellula,
What is a friction heater?

It is a heater that relies on two disks that spin counter rotational and heat is generated by the friction between the disks. ACE hardware used to sell them years ago and they may still be in their catalogue. Another thought is to arrange the rotation from the trailing taff log directly to the disks via a worm gear. The first method was to utilize existing products and the second would require development of new machine. The approach obviously will not work when not sailing. You could also relie on wind generation.
