Shanty heater

Discussion in 'Hard Water Discussions' started by CHOPIQ, Jun 16, 2004.

  1. I was at Wal Mart in Hilliard last night and they have catalytic heaters for $10. It is 880 BTU heater with a carrying case, 2 thermal blankets and waterproof matches. It would the perfect size for shanties.

    Would 880 be enough though? When I was fishing hard through the ice, I had a 9000 BTU, and sometimes it wouldn't keep up.
     

  3. all depends how big your shed is,probly work for small one man.
     
  4. Lantern used to work good in my shanty, you would have your coat open in no time.

  5. Heaters? Oh man. You guys need to dress for the weather! LOL. All the movement I get from drilling holes pulling fish through the ice keeps me warm.

    Maybe someday. My goal for this season is purchasing a power auger, then maybe I'll need that heater!
     
  6. Clothes is the real ticket + lantern = BIG FUN ;)
