Don't forget about safety now that the cold weather is here! Some tips to help keep you safe (especially the live-a-boards):

#1 - Be careful when using portable heaters of any kind, check them regularly and make sure they are not too close to any flammable surfaces (like cloth, etc). Never leave a portable heater on while you are not on the boat or sleeping.

#2 - If you are using a portable el...ectric heater, the rocking motion of the boat and possible inadequate wiring on many boats can create a potential fire hazard.

#3 -Check your plug receptacle for damage and do not use if it is black. Make sure your connection from the dock to your boat is free of cracks and black marks from excessive heat.
