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.

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?
