Default Boat cabin heaters??

Just got a 90 powerquest enticer 290...the boat has all the covers including a full inclosure. Is there any heaters out there that maybe can extend my boating season? Maybe piping hot water to some kind of heatercore or heater box that will blow into the cabin or cocpit?? Any suggestions?

I've seen them on some ski boats...

Or just throw a small space heater on to use at the dock. It will warm the boat up very quickly!

I have also cracked the engine hatch when running with the canvas up in 40* weather, it heats the cockpit up nicely.

well, never thought about the engine cover heat??? The space heater will heat up when plugged to shorepower but Mainly thinking of heat while going down the river.
