I was just at our local Costco and they had both thermal blankets and pads. They do run on 120v but the prices seemed fair. I believe the pad was 69 but don't quote me on it. Great thing about Costco, you can try it - if you don't like it take it back.

Of course I don't think this is a usable idea on a boat.
Ah...so. Now it's out. Brian is the real Bigfoot, Yeti, whatever. Or was he just talking about the bare necessities of life...which was sung by a bear..?
