I tested a Mr Buddy heater in a bathroom with the door shut using a digital CO detector. I let it run for awhile and the detector never read anything but 0. You might get a little smell. It's my understanding that some propane contains a small amount of oil. Why is beyond me...

Morning everyone,

If I have my canvas on the boat that will enclose it (Bimini with all panels zipped on) can I run a buddy heater inside this while the boat is in use? Any issues with the gas tank venting or carbon monoxide?

Mike you bought a heater and used it while you worked on your boat, did it blow up?

Unless the fuel tank is located in the same enclosed space as your buddy.
Having a hard time envisioning how or why anyone would have a 154 gallon fuel tank mounted next to them at the helm.

Seems a bit of a stretch of imagination to even consider such a thing....lol

Seems a bit of a stretch of imagination (even without tin foil hat) to even consider such a crazy thing....lol

Well I stand corrected. I had no idea we were talking about a tank (and boat) this big.

With this new info, I now give my approval.
