December 10, 2009                                                                                  Volume 1, Issue II1

                                 Extend Your Boating Season...
             Without fail every winter, boaters in many locations have a decision to make about how
             and when to prepare their boat for the winter season. Winterization is expensive, plus it
             renders your boat unusable throughout the winter/early spring. In many areas of the US,
             temperatures can drop below freezing and then can spring up to over 60 degrees a few
             days later.
             This translates into boating days lost during the winter and early spring due to permanent
             winterization. There IS an option, why not enjoy your boat year-round with the installation
             of a bilge heater?
             Marine Engine Compartment Heaters have been around for 20 years and are used my many
             boaters with great success. Basically, it is a device that is installed in your engine
             compartment that circulates warm air when temperatures drop below 45 and turns off
             when temperatures rises back up over 45 degrees.
             Here are a few things to know about BoatSafe heaters.
             Reliability: BoatSafe bilge heaters have a variety of Coast Guard and Independent testing
             lab approvals to put boater’s minds at ease.
             Size: Depending on the size of your boat compartment, BoatSafe Heaters offers two sizes
             that will fit nicely into any area of you engine compartment. Since the product circulates
             warm air versus blowing hot air like a hair dryer, one can mount it in several
             locations. Another feature is a vertical mounting bracket accessory that adapts well for
             certain compartments.
             Installation: Fairly straight forward for the DIY crowd. There are plenty of marinas and
             boat service centers that are very capable of providing installation services. Most
             installations take less than 1.5 hours.
             Cost to Operate: $.08 -.10 per hour to operate.
             Testing: To insure the unit is working, the BoatSafe Heaters feature a test button.
             Safety: Since it circulates warm air, the unit only gets warm to
             touch, unlike others that have “caution hot” labels.
             Besides being able to extend your boating season, the BoatSafe
             Heater provides additional value in the form of keeping your
             engine compartment dry and corrosion free, improving battery
             performance by having a warm engine, and save boaters money
             by eliminating the cost of annual winterization costs.

             Please contact Gibson to inquire about obtaining a
             BoatSafe heater.
