I want to write pages and pages about our Newport Dickinson heater.
We just installed a fuel-tank pickup and pump, so we can now run this beauty 24/7 without worrying about trying to refill a too-small tank (awkwardly mounted on the wall in the bathroom, cuz we never had a great home for it).
You can’t imagine how nice it is to be TOO WARM without being plugged into shore power. We are literally self-sufficient (until the diesel runs out, I guess 😉 ) which is exactly the feeling that we’re going for in this whole “let’s be Maine liveaboards” thing 🙂
But I’m not convinced that anyone is as interested in the temperature of our little home as I am, so I’ll stick to some pretty pics from the last few weeks instead…
Side note: I think living on a boat makes you HYPER attuned to weather. And maybe more likely to complain about it when it’s not exactly perfect. But also SO grateful when it magically is perfect – 10 knots of breeze, blue skies, and not so cold that we need toques just yet 🙂
Don’t worry, I’m sure the next post will be all about how it’s snowing and #winterishere and why-oh-why did we ever leave the tropics…. but for now, life is good 🙂
