Hi Cassidy and Vera, Thanks for your question. There is no heater on Rich’s boat. He had one on his boat in the 2008 race and thought this time he could do without. The engine does generate some heat when he runs it to charge the batteries but he does this only once every 5 days as he has other methods of charging the batteries.
