Grats Your getten it done

The flue is.... em... a Charlie Nobel ( not trying to correct you sir just trying to teach myself ) , I haven't seen his on boats yet but in Mich. in winter if one didn't have a heat box just above the stove and the flu from there it was a big wast of escapeing heat " the box " was like 12" X 12" X 12" with a bunch of 1" dia tubes all going in 1 direction with a fan behind one end of them blowing HOT air everywhere. ( completely sealed box with a flange on 2 ends to plum into flu er...Charlie Noble )...

Thay worked so great I am amazed I haven't seen one on a boat yet ...

Just a note of caution.. flue gases need to be somewhat hot to work with the combustion process in the burner compartment. is the newport lined in a type of fire brick? (also for good combustion) You would not want the gases condensing into water and dripping back down into the stove.

Since my Hunter has a similar underbody, I'm thinkin she got a little tender in the gusts.

Dude! now THAT'S a good idea!
I can't take credit for the key-hanging-on-the-seacock idea. That belongs to Sailingdog.

Hi GIl and Thanks for responding so quick.
It's good to know there's someone out there.
I've got 2, 750-1500w ceramic heaters and an oil filled along
with the Dickinson. I should be able to do this with that equip.
Do you wrap in poly and insulate with bubble wrap or do you have
a different sys.?

Thanks again
Victor

Ha!

And hang the engine key from the seacock, so you don't forget to open it when you run the engine!

I like that. Good idea.

Thanks..

Yea, I'm hoping to hear from DN owners.
I get lots of flame low and high but not much heat compared to the
little ceramic.
Most of it's going up the Charlie Noble (tip o' the hat to HD)

Thanks for chiming in.

Ooo I was very impressed with how well this boat handled in that weather. All I knew about Catalinas was that they weren't as sea worthy
as a Tartan, Sabre, CD, let alone the true blue water boats.
I didn't even consider a Catalina until I ended up on a Hunter 30.
I hemmed and hawed until a light came on... I'm not crossing the Atlantic,
I'm living on it! And then I realized a Cat or Hunter was exactly what I wanted. Lots of beam, pressure water...HEAT!!
After an hour outside of Boston Harbor with gusts to 35 and 6-8 ft seas
I was totally confident in this boat. Mind you...we were on a perfect close
reach with a following sea. 150 Genoa reffed about 75% Full main.
If I had to beat into that I would have went and hid somewhere probably. If not for the boat, for the crew. Another very peaceful, confident feeling I got
from that trip is...."I will never get out in that stuff again!" Ha!
(That story is a regular sailing saga...maybe I'll tell it sometime.
Suffice it to refer you to the old adage: The most dangerous equipment on a sailboat is a calendar)
Don't get me wrong... I raced motorcycles for 10 years and have flown
combat aircraft inverted @ 6 Gs ... but I don't like to spill my drink when I'm out sailing. I don't like to HAVE to be anywhere. I'm thinking "Sea Turtle"
might be a good name.

Yea.... I LIKE this boat. It'll do everything I want to do Xs 10.
I say if your not out to to cross oceans, impress racers and yachtsmen.
If you just want to be on the ocean comfortably (she likes 10deg of heel)
(so do I ) with room for 6 easy, and be plenty quick ( we we're surfing down
waves @ 9.5 knts.) by all means check out some Cats and Hunters.
The Peasons have better stats and by all reports preform better but not
so appealing to me for cooking and cleaning and kickin' back and enjoying
just being aboard....every day...for the foreseeable future.
Bang for the buck I feel I hit the Jackpot.
