Question Heater or hot shower ?

Well i am going to install 1 of these in my x2 when it arrives which would be more beneficial for a first project? We want to get our season started early this spring.

x2 for heater. You can take a cooler of hot water and dump some in your wetsuit to simulate the shower. Blowing warm air on your wife/kids is much more likely to extend your season. Also, it's nice to be able to warm up if you're really pushing the season. Once you stop spraying hot water on yourself, mother nature takes over and it freezes, no matter how hot it started.
Though last year's last set involved some hot water when I got home to get out the wetsuit and vest that had frozen to the carpet.

Funny you say that I pulled the carb on my boat this weekend and the motor box was frozen to the floor.

If you ordered your boat, I'd definitely add the heated seats. Loved that feature on my X14

I'd have to say my heater is used way more than my hot shower. But I wouldn't give up my shower either. The shower is really nice to spray down your neoprene before putting on for those second sets and it's nice to spray down your hands in between sets or after coming back in from a super cold set. I'd say go ahead and just do both. Shower isn't that hard to put in or costly.

But have to question why on earth are you buying a new x-2? Maybe you need to give that some more thought also!

Heater, no doubt about it. Like John said, we use our heated seats a lot too.
