The one question we get asked more than any is “I bet it’s cold in Winter” . Well last night was one of the coldest nights of the year and as you can see at seven minutes past two in the morning ( yes I’m getting old and have to get out and have a pee in the middle of the night ) it was minus 6.5 deg out and 21.2 deg half way up the boat with the bedroom at the end being just over 19 deg. On Inca we have spray foam insulation as well as central heating and double glazing which helps retain the heat.
Our main source of heat is our Morso multi fuel stove. We are burning Excel coal and when its really cold we will burn just over 2 bags a week at £10 a bag. Normally if we can find any wood to supplement the coal it would be just over a bag a week when it’s not so cold. We also have the stove fan on top that blows the hot air down the far end of the boat to the bedroom.
We also have a plan B as I always promised Carolyn she would never ever be cold on Inca. If it gets to minus double figures we have the luxury of two more stove fans giving us a total of three fans to keep her Ladyship warm and toasty. But I cant see us ever using them ,although you never know !
