Default Bilge Heater

I need to find a compact heater to put in the bilge this winter. I don't want to winterize because I plan to start and run the motors once a month to keep the batteries up and oil circulated etc. The boat may be laid up for as long as 2 years because they are lowering the lake to fix the damn dam.

Wow, if that is the case, you may want to go with automotive engine block heaters, and/or, oil heaters.

Winterize your motors. If you lose power for an extended time you will be in trouble.

South Carolina desn't get real bad winters, but, when you do get that one storm. All kinds of crap can happen. Winterize.

I just checked out your website, how much smaller is an Xtreme Heater than the other one out there?
