I'll second Jonathan's motion. Beyond the fire code issue (extensions cords mounted for a "permanent installed use" will pretty much fail you every time) they are a notorious cause of fires. We should quickly look for a permanent installation of outlets properly wired to plug these into to avoid any hazards. All the buildings and boats we have at one point or another have been checked for just this type of thing by either fire safety (buildings) or USCG (boats) inspectors.
