Get the temp just right
Too hot: close the dampers. You can close them all the way on a hot day. The fire will relight, but may take up to 5-10 minutes to see a flame.
Too cold: open the dampers a little more. Be careful when moving to use the wooden handles and never put your face over the stove when opening.
Captain getting cold
Do a quick check behind you to make sure the coast is clear, then safely do a full 360 in either direction and feel the hot water glide around the edge of the hot tub boat to the back of the boat.
Quickly check behind you for safety and then turn the boat away from the wave so that the waves first contact is the rear of the boat. The back is the highest point out of the water and has the ability to take bigger waves.
Our picks are Match Maker, Ice Bear, and Banjo. See if you can top them with a clever name for your hot tub boat.
The dual stern paddlewheel? The ultra modern floating home? Or the cute and cozy charmer?
Hint: It's tall, dark, and handsome—or hideous depending on which local you ask.
Pro tip: The hot tub is even more heavenly after a bold, cold plunge.
