I’m a sucker for good heated blanket. For years I’ve had them around the house at home, but I never thought to bring one down to the boat. They are fantastic on the boat! Staying warm with a heated blanket on the boat is to good to be true.
There are countless options out there on the market for whatever size or shape you fancy. The first time we brought one down to the boat for a winter cruise I can’t tell you how much I loved hopping into the aft cabin that night and getting into a toasty warm bed! Depending on your boat battery setup, you’ll need to restrict the usage of these to somewhere with shorepower, or you’ll have the option of using them while at anchor. Heated blankets are a great way to enjoy winter cruising, my only regret is that I didn’t bring one down earlier!
