Check a polar chart of a similar boat. Less wind the "hotter" the angle needs to be.

Re: Cruising the Michigan shore of Lake Michigan

Don't know what your draft is but Saugatuck is shallow. It would probably be easier to find a spot during the week. Plenty of room to anchor in Holland in several spots depending on wind direction.

Re: Dickinson Newport diesel heater - no fuel flow

Check with the Po if possible to see what fuel he used. I remember something in the manual about adjusting for different viscosity fuel , diesel , kero, stove fuel etc.

Maybe 12" of head isn't enough. Can you move the tank height up?

A piece of u channel or T beam bolted to the top would be a easy way to get the height and extension you want.
