Good, now you're below the 80% rating on the circuit breaker...and at a much safer place with regards to your boat.

Now the heater is set on 900 watts.
There is also a separate fan blowing on it from above and behind it. You can see it clipped to the "wall", right behind the thermometer.
Thank you very much for the advice.

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.
