Twice the money ($US75 vs. 35) but has a low O2 sensor and a 'tipped over' shut-off.........
I got one of these a couple of years ago. They come in a variety of BTUs, but mine also has the dual 1lb propane tank holders. I wanted it for the dead of winter, to do some projects in the cabin. With the hull of the boat at 30 degrees, it simply would not dent the interior temperature. I had it running so hard, the tanks were icing up from the rapid gas expansion. Nothing. The boat itself, was essentially a huge heat sink.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
