Re: Diesel cook stoves and heaters - teach me the basics!

I have the Sigmarine 170 bulkhead mounted diesel heater in my Bene 390 and really like it. Been using it most weekends for the past year and a half and it is still shinny clean inside. If it is a porper install with enough chimney length and a Barometric damper installed as the first section close to the heater. Mine can handle about 15 knots of wind before i have to worry about any down drafting. Down drafting can be eliminate if you want by installing a balanced draft but i couldn't stand the idea of putting two 5 inch holes in the cabin top
