On my last boat, a Watkins 27 my Dickinson Newport 9000 unit really didint work well in the New Jersey Winters, granted since then I learned toput a fan on the floor and point it upwards to move the air around. I was cold alot those winters.
This year I didnt have the funds to install the heating system I wanted on my Morgan 34 so I used kerosene heater, a simple 10,000 btu unit...kept a window open for venting...cost me about 15 dollars a week in kero and a 20 some dollar electric bill a month and was very warm.
Next year the Dickinson Lofoten diesel heater anywhere for 6700btu to 17kbtu... nice Im curious for next year, cause I plan on hooking it to my hot water tank for free hot water and add a radiator for extra heat at no extra cost.
