Diesel Antartic stove. Burns up to 1 gallon of diesel/24 hrs. plumbed in to our main tanks. Minimal stuff to go wrong but needs to be mounted with heeling in mind if used underway. Every once in a while, we get some soot on the deck like JohnRPollard mentioned. Nice ambience with the visible flame. An alternate cooking source. Plumbs in to our hot water tank, so we have hot water in the morning. Plenty of BTU's, although it takes a little while to heat up the boat (unlike one of those forced air diesel stove). Quiet.
