I would want something that can be run while sailing, so you could go down below to warm up periodically and therefore extend your sailing season a bit.

I am unsure how the alcohol heater can have 5000 btu's but the propane only 3000... and which would be safer...

So the black cat doesn't release CO and CO2? You can't gas yourself with it? How is this possible?
