Cal Yachts
One of my favorite sailboats. I've owned a Cal 2-27 for over 20 years. I've owned larger, newer boats but the cal 27 remains my favorite sailboats for the Great Lakes especially Lake Erie.

our Hotblast 1500 wood/coal add-on furnace.

The 1500 add on furnace is designed to use in conjunction with your existing HVAC ductwork and work seamlessly with your existing furnace. With twin 550 CFM blowers and up to 139,000 BTU’s it is designed to heat a home up to 2500 square feet.

I enjoy this furnace and burn firewood only. Coal is too expensive for my use. Also I like the smell of firewood burning but don't care for the smell of burning coal. These are great add-on wood or coal furnaces. They can be purchased at most farm supply or hardware stores that sell wood stoves.
