Waltthesalt is on a distinguished road
Instantaneous propane heaters were practical and popular. The problem was safety. If not properly installed or operated there is a risk of the exhaust fumes getting into the cabin area. As a result most manufactures eliminated those lines for boats. They still make them for RVs where venting is easy. some also say their units can be used on boats. I still have my old unit and will be looking for a replacement
