Foraging for firewood is a bit difficult with the four feet of snow about but luckily im slipped up near some boat builders with plenty of hardwood scraps. It seems Im ruffing it a bit more despite the slightly milder climate. Right on to you my fellows chasing the dream!
First, a propane camp stove for heat is a good way to get carbon monoxide poisoning and adds a lot of moisture to the interior which will condense out and help cause mold/mildew problems. I hope you have a CO detector aboard, along with a propane fume sniffer.

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.

I do have CO detector. I use the propane sparingly and I open the boat up during the day to dispense the moisture. I throughly clean the interior surfaces often. Ive even washed the lead ballast. Two girls caught pnumonia after separate stays on board so I cleaned every part of the interior I could reach. I run the bilge ventilator daily as well. Im doing my best preventing explosions, suffocations and unhealthy conditions.

Living aboard in Boston. just the summer so far, boat needs hauling for maintenance, so probably keep it out for the winter. 33 feet no problem for youngish (almost fifty) couple.

Hey Tim, it seems we just can't get enough of your advice. We hope you enjoyed your vacation. We missed you for the storm; sat at Dimillos and watched the boat rock. I have been reading about cruising with dogs. Looking forward to some more sailing advice from Shamus.
Your neighbors,
LadySlipperII

Does anyone of you have a Taylor or Dickenson Cabin Heater aboard. I have a Taylor, excellent heater, but I have a clogged fuel line, so I'm not getting a drip. Any suggestions for clearing since I can't run a wire three feet up the tube? It"s a diesel gravity flow, and I've already tried stabilizer but that didn't help. Any suggestions?

Ted
