Coleman SportCat

3 posts in this topic

I was fortunate enough to receive a Coleman SportCat catalytic heater for Christmas this year. I've never used a heater like this before. I've suffered in my little single man portable with candle lanterns the past several years. They don't provide much heat obviously.

Is this safe to use without vents in my old fish house? Or should I cut some vents? I get a lot of air flow up from the bottom of it because I don't pack snow around the front, it's a flip over style house. I heard the BlackCat heaters from Coleman say they are safe for indoor use. The SportCat doesn't say that anywhere on the box.

Thanks for any help.

You should be fine with the minimal ventilation that you already have. The Sportcat only puts out like 1100 BTU's, so it really doesn't consume a ton of oxygen or produce a lot of co2. You will like the Sportcat, not a ton of heat, but you can put the unit very close to you. Perfect for warming up the hands after catching a fish or puttin on a minner.

Also, I plan on keeping one running overnight in my tent while winter camping, and I'm not too worried about suffocating in my sleep.

I use the Blackcat in my 1-man FishTrap with no problems. I'm usually burning my Coleman lantern at the same time. Remember CO2 builds up in your system over time.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.

    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
