"We're getting a quote on an Espar diesel furnace but the initial estimate was $6k. I didn't realize these things were so expensive! Is that right?"
Yeah, about right. I paid $5,300 in 2002 for the D5LC and installation. It's good stuff, but doesn't come cheap.
Then, again....the Passport 40 is a quality boat. I figure you don't want to junk up such a boat with anything less than quality gear. Just gotta take a deep breath and pony up the boat units :-))
Seriously, though, central forced air heating is a wonderful thing and I'd think it especially great in the northern climes where you plan to cruise.
