Re: Canadian sailing + heating ?

if you have room and diesel power, a diesel bulkhead heater is the way to go.
if you have no room, diesel power and $4000 to spare, a Wallas or Espar is the way to go.
If you have the room, no diesel, but have propane, a propane bulkhead heater is the way to go.
If you have the room, no diesel, no propane, an alcohol heater is the way to go.
If you have little room, no diesel, no alcohol, no propane, and a small budget, a Fatsco solid fuel stove is the way to go

If you have none of the above, dress warmer.

Some folks like the idea of an overturned flowerpot on a lit stove burner. Personanlly I use a propane tent heater and a fan to keep air circulating.
