Have any in our group added insulation to the inside of their boats?
I spent the night on the boat over the weekend, mind you my boat is in California and northerners will not show much sympathy but, it was all of about 45 or 50 degrees out and the boat felt like an ice box. Speaking of ice boxs, I left my refer on overnight froze all my beer.
I have a small electric heater that I use in the main cabin. It keeps the cabin reasonably comfortable when socializing or just setting around, it does not do much for the forward cabin. I left the heater on medium under the game table, the forpeak seems to radiate cold from the deck above and the sides of the hull and the heater just does not overcome this.
My wife has never spent the night on the boat and I could use some extra heat so I brought my Black Lab Beamer, he is pretty cuddly and generaly complains less than my wife. I have one of Beamers sons as well, his name is Tucker, next time I may bring him as well if it gets colder. They do shed a bit more than my wife but she spends less time licking herself, just can't convince her it is as comfortable as our bed at home.
Guess I could line the forpeak with bubble wrap.
