As I write, the Kabola K7 hydronic heating system is being installed in Soul Balladeer.
We will have 5 zones:
Fwd head/shower- Small fan unit
Pullmans berth- Single large fan unit
Lower salon- Double large fan unit
Pilothouse- Double large fan unit
Aft Cabin- Double large fan unit
The system puts out 23,700 BTU and heats the solaris hot water tank as well. This is great in the PNW as we can now extend our cruising season to full year and have hot showers at will.
Hot showers are good. When you have access to a hot shower, you tend to use it more, the direct result of which is that people don’t mind being around you . It’s all good.
