heater

6 posts in this topic

Hey-

I have a FT Yukon, and am currently running a sunflower on top of a 20# tank. I want to upgrade cause the 20# tank is to bulky for me.

I am considering a 11# tank or a Mr. Buddy Big Heater.

What would you reommend?

Thanks

11# hands down. Can't beat the BTU's of a sunflower and not to mention they are virtually maintenance free. They also stay lit in a strong wind.

I use the Mr. Heater cooker. That way with a hose ran to the heater, i can leave the tank outside to save room in the house if i plan to stay in one spot for awhile or put the tank in the sled behind me. Plus i like to have the heat close to ice level...keeps my toes warm and the holes open.

I don't own a big buddy heater but wouldn't that thing be just as bulky as a 20# tank? and that is without the propane to run it.

I have the FT Voyager and have the 11# tank (the pancake style) with the Mr. Heater/Cooker Sunflower heater. I have about three feet of hose connected to the heater with a quick disconnect on the other end. I have a longer hose on the tank with the mating end for the disconnect so I can separate the two for easier handling plus I can leave the tank outside of the fish house. Works great.

Mr. Heater cooker and 11# for me too. On big trips I will bring the big tank and put a Mr. Heater on top of that. On walk in trips I will use a 1# tank and cooker. I may get the new bottle top heater by Coleman.

11# tank and cooker for me also. I mounted a 12 inch x 12 inch piece of treated plywood to the bottom of the cooker to make it more stable. Definetly run the longer hose and put the tank outside. It save alot of room and keeps the heater down on the ice and away from the door.

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
