Re: Wood, Diesel or propane bulkhead heating stove?

We've had wood and diesel bulkhead heaters.And a couple of free standing diesel heaters over the years. I've seen the horrifying results of a propane bulkhead heater, although I'm sure they are much safer these days. Our last boat had a forced air Webasto. We had trouble free and almost instant heat for ten years with that boat ( Fisher 30) One of the first modifications on this sailboat was another Webasto furnace. Heat, just like at home, with a thermostat! Without taking up cabin space. Very efficient and low cost fuel wise. Tap the main diesel tank with a pickup tube and your set.
