What kind? I have a friend who has used the Paloma, but I know the insurance companies don't like them. I know there are a few marine grade units out there but wondered how flexible the installation is. The Paloma unit is rather ugly.

I always figured a hydronic heating system would be a first class way to go, but they are very expensive and overkill for my area. I also don't know how well they would work for just heating water and not the whole boat when the weather is nice.
