Temperature

I understand the need for a Clock and Barometer (the original purpose anyway) but how many here have temperature gauges on the fwd bulkhead? ..and why??

I can understand the need for seawater temperature (ocean currents) and even outside air temperature (do I REALLY want to go outside?).. but it seems to me that, if it's freezing in the cabin, you don't need a temperature guage to tell you that.

So.. what am I missing?

It is for good luck. Three is a prime number. It often means alive.

Hey,

Without the thermometer, how would I know if it was hot or cold

As soon as you got out of bed to read the stupid thing, you'd find out soon enough..

Exactly.

..so why would ANYONE need a flashy polished-brass (or chrome if you like that) temperature gauge on the bulkhead? ..if not to impress non-sailing guests who will simply say something along the lines of: "Gee.. I would never have guessed how COLD it was down here if you didn't have a temperature gauge! Do ALL boats have them?!?" Sheeesh..

In the same category as the boarding-mat-with-anchor-symbol and the mini-life-ring-with-a-mirror... Sorry, I just don't get it.

What ever happened to the tin of butter on the table? When it starts melting head south?

I have a thermometer on board, but it's just a $6 hardware store one (though it's set in wood). I have some interest in knowing how hot or cold it is, particularly in winter. Some days I visit and it's 18 (brrr!). This month I was aboard and it was 96. Sailing in winter, if the cabin starts around freezing and warms to near 50 with the aladdin lamp and oven, I win.
Don't you watch the weather on TV and note and discuss temeratures?
