Wet and wild!

Still blowing and getting colder!
We awoke this morning to strong winds and 10C in temperature....even Louise was cold! (but not complaining).
Sipping my coffee with my warm socks and hat on, I decided to throw caution to the wind, and see if the on-board heating system works.
After four years of boat ownership, this feature had never been tried.
Start the generator, switch on the A/C main breaker, turn on the forward A/C unit (we have two, fore and aft), and select heat.....
Within ten minutes warm air is pouring into the main cabin, we're charging our main batteries at 70AmH, and turned on the hot water heater.
Within 30 minutes, it's warm and toasty!
Now all we need to do is wait for the sun to do it's job, and warm up the air outside!
