Re: Heat lamps for temporary freeze protection
The boat is at a DIY boat club. There are no reliable contractors in the area. Every time I've inquired about hiring someone, people invariably recommend their "buddy" whom I could tell from the booze on their breath that I wanted nowhere near my boat. There is absolutely nobody in the are that I would trust on my boat while I am out of town.
I'll get everything done that I can Friday night, but a couple drop lights for ~8 hours are a last resort fallback, and commonly used by my two next-door neighbors in past years. Leaving a 60w light turned on in a dry area is a risk that we all take daily in our homes and in every other aspect of our lives. I'll ditch the heat lamp, but I need to find a couple traditional incandescent bulbs.
