Re: how do i make it warm

I have seen some pretty good airtight woodstoves made out of old propane tanks. They last about 13 years .

Re: how do i make it warm

We use our propane stove while awake. VERY low and with a pan or something to heat. I'm thinking of getting a slab of scrap aluminum plate from work. I bet that would be perfect. While sleeping, I'm on board with the black Lab but only if he's on top of my warm sleeping bag. We'll cruise into the 40's at night with no problems. Our boat is not very big so my lovely bride and I sleep in separate berths. We CAN both get into mine as it expands 10" and becomes a . . ."super". But that type of chicanery is best left to skinny college kids.

Re: how do i make it warm

The lows some of you are describing are = to our highs in the summer sometimes.

We call that a nice day.

Dang I need a holiday in a place that is warmer.
