Need some heat to get the Admiral and I through these harsh california winters in Santa Barbara. It's only going to be 65 today, might need to wear pants.

your not going to get a lot of sympathy from a lot of members here as SB is downright hot by comparison to most of the US these days...
But is does get cold there.. We once sailed up from Catalina to our slip in SB a couple days before Christmas and when I stepped to the dock slipped on the ice that was on the dock (and it was not from a spilled Margarita)
Boy do I miss those "winters" we had in SB...
I have watched those same heaters and look forward to any input others have on them.
