Propane Boat Heaters.......good/bad idea

Postby viper24k » Wed Aug 10, 2005 8:06 am

I'm sorta new to the whole dhc theory so i tried this thread in the gear forum not knowing any better so now that i'm a little more experienced i'll give her a whirl in here.......... I just bought a 17'4" old town penobscot canoe dirt cheap.......and i was sick of pickin up dekes when i couldnt feel my fingers so i ran some propane tubes to the front and the back of the canoe and then made the line that ran the propane tank remote so i can put it in the reeds.....(its camo)...........the heaters on each end of the boat are the Mr. Heater fish house heaters and i've made them detachable......is this a bad idea or did i do something to a canoe that some have not..........i've heard both ways....


if you want pics let me know
Theres nothin better than a moonlit sunrise over a spread of dekes

I have always said , A warm dry hunter will stay on the hunt longer . I take it the tank is in the center of the canoe , what size is it ?

I like the Mr. Heater Portable Buddy heaters. Not as warm as their other models but nowhere near as dangerous i.e. burning you, burning equipment or starting a fire. Matter of fact, when they tip over they cut off.

I run two in my 1854 jon with fabric blind. Keeps it nice and toasty.
