Re: Dickinson Newport diesel heater
I have owned a Newport diesel on a previous boat. As long as the installation is done properly they are very efficient and work well. They do prefer not running on low for long periods of time.
The Dickinson propane heaters (9000 and 12000 models) are good for weekending but if you are a liveaboard you will be filling the propane tanks very often in the winter.
I do not agree the production quality has changed at all. The Newport model currently sold is exactly the same as the one I owned in the early 90's.
