Tankless hot water heaters

Hello,

I am trying to find myself a good tankless hot water heater that uses propane.
Does anyone know of a good one that is portable and can be used on a sailboat? This would primarily be used for the odd hot shower or a warm up on a rainy day.

I've looked at the ones from Zodi but I'm not too sure about those yet for some reason.

Thanks,
Adam

Why do you need it to be portable??? A permanently installed propane tankless hot water heater would be safer to use on a sailboat. Generally, IMHO, having "portable" propane devices on a sailboat is a bad idea.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

at the risk of being blacklisted - I have a small propane tankless water heater that I use for camping, have used it once or twice on the boat for a quick rinse in the cockpit. Picked it up at Wal-mart camping section, think it is about $60. But give Sailingdog credit, caution would be in order. When camping I hang it up on a tree, never have started a fire, or even smoked the bark of the tree. But then the tree does not bounce around.
