RE: Sad day.

Mark,We have a Wabasto. I modified the thermostat so it will function down to 40 degrees. When it's cool I set the thermostat for 70 degrees and forget all about the cool until I go out on deck or open a window. But the biggest benefit of the thermostat controlled Wabasto is that it keeps the boat at a nearly constant temperature all night. We're never cold in the morning. It's rather quiet.The unit is aft and we sleep fwd. The exhaust is out the transom. We also have a small bus heater also known as a "Red Dot" (brand name I spoze). It's fan is quite noisy and we rarely use it. I plan on installing a small 16K BTU diesel bulkhead heater/stove w a "carburetor" and little bot bellied burner. We take heat seriously up here. Three sources of heat is my goal. Icing and visibility can be a real problem in winter and I've only "pickled" my boat once. Boating in winter is dangerous but I just love to run well out into Clarence Strait when it's clear, calm and about 10 or 15 degrees. It's just beautiful. And I take a bunch to Christmas dinner down the Bay most every year.
