Captain Evgeniy Gvozdev circumnavigation

Hi there,
First, some historical notes.
There is a captain in Russia, Evgeniy Gvozdev, who made one single-handed circumnavigation in a 5.5 m sail boat – micro class racing boat.
Few years later he built a boat 3.6 m long in his apartment building kitchen, brought her down through the window and circumnavigated single-handed again.

Today, 4 years after his return he plans to go third time on a boat which should be 3m long. The boat now is under design. Going though the Roaring 40es is one of the options.

The question for today is – what type of heating device can be used on a boat this small?

It should not use electricity, should not consume oxygen from the cabin, and, ideally, should not use any fuel. Granted, it should be tiny.

If you want to know more about captain Gvozdev, here is his website:

://gvozdev.iwt.ru

It is in Russian but I can post some material here in English.
He is now finalizing a book about his adventures. It will be published in Russian some time in the future.

Alexei

I cannot post links since I am new here, so add http to the address I posted.
The site is slow and some times is not accessible. Sorry it is going to be better some time in the future.

I would go with a wood stove. Make a nice rick of split oak, probably about 10-12 cord, and stack it up against the mast. This was the set up I used when I circumnavigated last year on my daughter's "Tortola Barbie" sloop. It's topsides and deck were hot pink and just over a foot long.

How do you heat if you don't use fuel... solar heat is about the only choice he's got left. And in the northern climes... it just won't cut it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I bet you did not go to the Roaring 40s, did you?

Well, it was a bit of a joke, about fuel. I was just testing this new community.
Roaring 40s are in the South, may be it is better there?

In fact, the question is not a joke and resolving it proved to be very difficult and important.

Screaming Sixties for me. The "Tortola Barbie" sloop was really poorly made. The plastic hull flexed, and it turned out to be just too small with all that wood onboard. Lead poisoning became a problem (it was made at the Milton Bradley factory in China). The head was tiny -- only one inch wide -- which left a big mess after each bowel movement. I could go on and on...

Technically, Mr. Fusion still uses fuel...
