I was thinking more towards kerosine. I'm not an electrician with the amps/watts side of things. Garage is tied to the house, so I don't want to trip a breaker every time my wife uses the toaster. Right now I have to be careful if we have a space heater and then run the vaccum. Just need to be careful where we plug in.

With kerosine, it eliminates electricity. Just not sure if I can raise 20 degree temps to high 50's/60 to get stuff to cure properly. Still not sure I can glass properly at those temps. Even with electric, I might be able to get it comfortable, but not proper temps. I did some experiments without heat and everyting just gets brittle.

Suriam, yes You saw my FB post. The plan is to foam the rails with good old fashioned home depot 2" insulation which I'll layer to the right thickness and fit in 12" lengths between the ribs. I have a deck and hull that will be recessed along the ribs and then glass the whole thing after shaping rails, sanding, painting, etc. The hard work (measuring and frame cutting) is done, now it's just like a big tinker toy that needs to be assembled with adhesives.
