Dave,

I have friends who go to Desolation on their 3 week vacation. You won't have a lot of time to smell the roses but it is certainly doable. Running the boat for 8 to 10 hours would certainly...

Who is the NW distributor? I look at the Planer hydronic heater and it looks like it could be a direct replacement for my D10 hydronic Espar and with a lot more features.
