I know this is a late reply, but I've been in Tampa (no the weather wasn't great only 60, lots of wind.. made rough fishing in the mangroves
Anyway, I meant if I had a generator, I'd likely use it to power certain sections of the fishroom, while leaving the actual generator outside... depending on how strong the generator is, the amount of heaters I have may overdraw the generator.
About carbon monoxide, I lost two friends in highschool while they were camping in the winter. They had a propane heater in the tent, my friends and one of their fathers never woke up... I wouldn't risk it.
On another note, there was a guy on the GCAS site who used a kerosene heater in his fishroom garage. He went back in after a day of work, and found everything coated in soot. It clogged all his airlines as well the blower and everything else.... feel bad for him.
