Val, I have a double walled stainless 4 inch chimney. My boat was used as a liveaboard in Michigan and it provided enough heat, for that climate. It is a well made unit. His records which I have, state he used on average 13 gallons of diesel a week in January and February. I only used it once last year while working on the boat. It nearly drove me out of the boat. To much heat for a 40F degree day in southern New Jersey.

My chimney is a straight run through the cabin top.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
