|Yep, that's snow. . .
For most of the fall, our big Kirkman #2 lanterns, cranking out about 1200BTU when turned up, were more than enough to heat the space comfortably. As the evening temps began dropping into the 20's and teens, however, they began to be less and less able to cope.
One of our first moves was to purchase a small quartz heater for use in the colder evenings. While this was safe, inexpensive, and took up very little space, it still tied us more to shore power than we're comfortable (resistance heating being a major battery suck).
With our earlier success with our new kerosene cookstove, and our love of lanterns, we thought we'd try a Kerosene heater as an option. One of of dockmates had this lovely old Perfection heater that he was willing to lend us for a trial run.
So stay warm, folks. . .
