Welcome Ron,

Your wife is wise. Heat is important in the PNW year round. We spent the weekend on the boat and used the heat every morning. In a way, you have an advantage. You know that you only want to keep this boat for a few years. That can save you a lot of money as many of us buy boats for "what if" or "maybe when" events of our imagined future lives.

So find a boat with heat. Your costs go up dramatically if you have to add those things later. If you go with a diesel powered boat, most boats around here seem to have some form of diesel heat. If not, you will need a generator so you can run electric heat.
