Re: Heater and fuel bladder

Kimberlite came with a couple of blowers mounted under the port coming in my port locker.
I was hooked to ductwork to blow fresh air into the aft cabin, the main cabin , and the forward cabin.
It was very easy to hook an Espar heater into this system as the ductwork was in place. I don’t know if the 54 was supplied with this option.
If you do not have these ducts, then I agree that hot water with blowers is the way to go.
I think you will find pumping the fuel into the tank a lot easier than using fuel nozzle. You also do not get air into the bladder.
In the interim If you turn on the stove and open the companionway a crack it heats up the main cabin nicely.
Some old timers used to use red clay flower pots over the burners to act as radiators.
I am off to Kimberlite on the 12th and will return on the 21st
