Heaters - diesel v propane?

Hello to all - we are new to the site and have questions regarding cabin heaters. We own (and liveaboard) a Pacific Seacraft 34 (1988). We just moved her from the Gulf Coast to Washington State and will be spending our winter on the Hood Canal. We now have to decide what kind of heater would be best for our boat.

We would love to hear all the pros and cons of diesel v propane. We have both fuel sources on board including 2 - 20lb propane tanks for cooking and grilling.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated

David & Jo
